To all visitors of the WAHA website,

Hello, I am very pleased to welcome you to Weeneebayko Area Health Authority’s (WAHA) website.

WAHA is responsible for providing comprehensive health services in the beautiful Weeneebayko region along the James Bay and Hudson Bay coastal regions in northern Ontario servicing six communities: Moose Factory, Fort Albany, Attawapiskat, Moosonee, Kashechewan and Peawanuck. This very scenic and diverse area is rich in Aboriginal culture and history.

WAHA is the result of an October 1, 2010 amalgamation of the Weeneebayko Health Ahtuskaywin (federal hospital) and James Bay General Hospital (provincial hospital).

I am so proud of our accomplishments since October 2010. Our staff, community members, and supporters are to be commended for all the work in making WAHA a reality. With continued efforts, WAHA looks forward to advancing progress as we work towards providing more services close to home.

If you have any comments or suggestions for the website, please contact WAHA’s Director of Community Relations at (705) 658-4544 ext. 2222. We encourage you to visit our website for any further information that you may be interested in.

Sincerely,
Leo Loone
WAHA Board Chair
