Have you ever wanted to learn more about Indigenous medicine? Led by knowledge keeper Audrey DeRoy, join us for a teaching that will introduce you to traditional healing and medicines.

The teaching will take place in St. Joseph's Hospital's Contemplation Space, which was co-designed with client and family partners. The inspiration for the room was a healing lodge, with natural light, wood walls, and a starlight ceiling.



St. Joseph's Care Group

St. Joseph’s Care Group (SJCG) combines tradition and innovation in responding to the unmet needs of the people of Northwestern Ontario since 1884. We are here for our clients, offering a broad range of programs and services in Addictions & Mental Health, Rehabilitative Care, and Seniors’ Health across eight sites in the City of Thunder Bay.

With over 2,200 staff and growing, we pride ourselves on maintaining our core values of Care, Compassion, and Commitment. We are recognized as a leader in delivering safe, high-quality health care and have been Accredited with Exemplary Standing, the highest level awarded by Accreditation Canada.

Coupling research with mobilization, our Centre for Applied Health Research (CAHR) supports internal and external staff and clinicians through expertise, project consultation and knowledge translation.

Our Behavioural Sciences Centre provides service to many companies and businesses in the region through Employee & Family Assistance Programs, the provision of confidential, high-quality counseling, as well as insurance and workplace assessment services.

St. Joseph’s Care Group is rooted in a tradition that began 135 years ago with the opening of Thunder Bay’s first hospital. We are always changing, always finding new ways to meet the needs of the people we serve, and always here for you when you need us.
