For the past five years, the Indigenous Health team at St. Paul’s, led by Neil Fowler and overseen by Christopher De Bono, Providence Health Care’s (PHC) senior executive for Indigenous Wellness, has been working at the All Nations Sacred Space to provide opportunities for traditional healing for Indigenous people receiving care at St. Paul’s Hospital and within the larger community. The space, open 24 hours a day, has become the site of healing ceremonies, talking circles, feasts, and gatherings.
As a founding member of Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster, and working with the brightest collaborators, Providence Health Care is discovering the health innovations of the future.
