New Reconciliation Garden
October 20, 2022
Funded in part thanks to donations from our community – you! – and The Winnipeg Foundation, our new Reconciliation Garden opened October 20, 2022.
Under the guiding hand of Elder Ron Bell, who offered a smudging ceremony, songs, and a blessing for the new site, the Reconciliation Garden creates an environment for inclusion of Indigenous practices, inspires conversations about reconciliation, and features plants and details with cultural significance.

We’re delighted to share with you an article that appeared in Monday’s Winnipeg Free Press.
You can read about a new study – funded by the Foundation and your donations – out of our Chronic Disease Innovation Centre, in partnership with the University of Manitoba, that proves membership at a Medical Fitness Facility (like the Wellness Institute!) reduces mortality (by an amazing 60%!) and reduces risk of hospitalization by 13%.
Seven Oaks Emergency Converted to Urgent Care
It is important for you to know that Seven Oaks emergency department converted to an urgent care centre effective July 22, 2019.
As your community hospital, the urgent care centre is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to address unexpected health concerns that need same-day attention.
The urgent care centre is staffed by emergency-trained physicians and highly trained nurses. As with all urgent care centres, lab services, and diagnostic imaging are available.
I invite you to visit My Right Care for more information about urgent care. If you have additional questions, please contact us and we’ll do our best to help.
