At Norfolk General Hospital, we want to create culturally safe and respectful spaces for our patients and families who identify as First Nations, Inuit, Métis and urban Indigenous. This page contains information about how we support Indigenous patients and families in our hospital.

We are proud to offer Aboriginal Patient Navigator services to support Aboriginal patients and their families through their healthcare journey. In partnership with De dwa da dehs nye>s, Aboriginal Patient Navigators support our patients by:
- Providing support at clinic visits.
- Helping patients and families communicate with members of their healthcare team, like doctors and nurses.
- Helping patients connect with traditional Aboriginal healers.
- Arranging language and cultural translation services.
