The Yukon Hospital Corporation formally opened the Watson Lake Community Hospital on August 28th. The hospitalĀ meets the health care needs of you and your family by offering:

  • Emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Ambulatory care services such as IV therapy and dressing changes
  • In-patient care (six beds) providing:
    • Stabilization, observation and monitoring
    • Convalescent care
    • Respite care
  • First Nations Health Program
  • Diagnostic Services:
    • Laboratory
    • Medical Imaging (X-rays)

This means you and your family can receive more of your health care in your home community. First Nations patients and their families have the support of the First Nations Health Liaison Workers, with services delivered in a culturally sensitive environment.

The design of the new Watson Lake Hospital and Health Services Facility is flexible and supports many community health partnerships including:

  • Yukon Government Homecare
  • Yukon Government Public Health Unit
  • Child Development Centre
  • Visiting Specialists and Other Health Care Professionals

Watson Lake Hospital will continue to work with Yukon Government's Health and Social Services to offer comprehensive palliative care in the hospital and in the community.
