The centre will open with:

The centre will change over time to meet community needs.
Mission and values
Patient health is our first priority. The centre delivers innovative and quality health and wellness services that are family-centred. These services are available in both French and English.
The centre focuses on inclusive and interdisciplinary approaches. It provides bilingual services that are culturally and linguistically adapted to the community. The centre develops and maintains partnerships that allow equitable access to services. This promotes, protects and improves people’s health and wellness.
Equitable health and wellness services are in both French and English. Reducing barriers to services is an important part of the centre's mission.
We collaborate to ensure services are seamlessly integrated into Yukon’s health system. We develop customized services that are responsive to individual and community needs.
We intentionally create an inclusive and non-discriminatory environment. This provides a space that is physically and psychologically safe for everyone.
We treat each person who comes to the Centre with respect and dignity.
All staff use interpersonal and clinical skills to provide high quality service.
The Government of Yukon is setting up a new midwifery program that will provide safe, integrated and accessible care to pregnant people and their babies whenever they need it through:
- birth; and
- up to 8 weeks after the baby’s birth.
The goal of the Yukon Midwifery Program is to provide Yukoners with additional options for safe maternal care and fully integrated to the Yukon health system. Registered midwives will work with other health care providers and collaborate closely with them at all stages.
