Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay

Haida Gwaii Hospital

In November 2016, Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay – Haida Gwaii Hospital & Health Centre, a Northern Health facility, opened its doors to serve the communities of Daajing Giids Queen Charlotte, HlGaagilda Skidegate, Tlell, and Sandspit. It replaced the Queen Charlotte Islands General Hospital (1953-2016).

Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay – Haida Gwaii Hospital provides a full range of outpatient and emergency care, as well as in-hospital care (16 beds, 8 of them designated for long-term care) and low-risk obstetrics. It is the hub of the Haida Gwaii Cancer Care program, which gives Haida Gwaii residents access to most chemotherapy treatments locally. The new facility brings together a multidisciplinary team of health care providers, including family physicians and allied health professionals (see Services). Visiting specialists provide our communities with timely access to greater expertise, when necessary.

For information about the medical clinic and out-patient services, please visit the Haida Gwaii Health Centre page.
If you are new to the South End health care team or plan to join us in the near future, take our South End Tour for an overview of our services and community resources.

In June 2018, over 500 people pulled together to raise the Xaana Kaahlii Ngaaysdll Naay GyaaGang (Skidegate Inlet Healing House Monumental Pole) in front of the new hospital:

«This pole tells the story of how our two communities combined western medicine and Haida health models to create a holistic approach to health and wellness on Haida Gwaii. The intercultural dimension of this pole reflects over two centuries of cultural contact, exchange and colonialism, and the integrated histories that have been the result. The Xaana Kaahlii Ngaaysdll Naay GyaaGang pole reflects the changing, migrating and transforming nature of this relationship and the commitment of the communities of HlGaagilda and Daajing Giids to learn from the past and work together towards a better future.»
