The Athabasca Health Facility (also known as the Yutthe Dene Nakohodi Health Facility) is a full-service acute care and long term care hospital and community health facility.
Serving the needs of native and non-native residents of North Saskatchewan, the facility is located on the Chicken Indian Reserve, adjacent to the community of Stony Rapids.
The structure is energy-efficient and flexible, accommodating both modern and traditional First Nations health care practices, and is a model of integrated rural and remote health and social service delivery.
