“It has always been our mission to provide high quality, patient-centered health care that is responsive, courteous, and sensitive to individual, family, community, and cultural needs,” said Sault Tribe Chairman Austin Lowes. “We want hear from the community what is working well within the health system, what changes would they like to see, what new services are needed and what the health priorities for our community should be.”

This town hall is part of a broader clinic operations assessment and community health needs assessment the tribe is conducting. Other activities to evaluate possible changes and improvements include evaluating health system data, conducting staff surveys and interviews and analyzing market needs.

Each participant who attends the Jan. 18 event will have the opportunity to win one of 25 gift cards valued at $50 that will be drawn in a raffle to thank attendees for their time and input.

“It’s important that our health system continues to evolve to the needs of the community and this is one of the ways that we can ensure we are providing services that keep people healthy and improve the quality of life for those who are ill,” said Lowes.
