The Beaufort-Delta Health and Social Services Authority (BDHSSA) serves the 6,700 residents of the Beaufort Delta Region in the Northwest Territories - a land of dramatic landscapes, abundant wildlife, fascinating history, and accessible cultural encounters.
We operate the Inuvik Regional Hospital, 8 health centres and community based health and social services programs throughout the Beaufort Delta region. We have over 300 employees who provide health and social services such as mental health, nutrition, surgery, medical care, and counseling.
A region where people are empowered to live healthy lives
To work together with individuals, families and communities to support health and well-being
The values of the BDHSSA are represented by the acronym RAISE. More than a simple way to remember each value, the term refers to the intention of the BDHSSA to RAISE the bar when it comes to the delivery of health and social services in the Beaufort Delta.
We are committed to an atmosphere of respect that acknowledges and embraces the diverse cultures of our region, respects individual choices and delivers services with caring dignity, compassion and empathy, and we model that through respect for each other.
As a part of our commitment to become an independent and sustainable organization, we are accountable and transparent to our partners, our staff and our clients.
We operate ethically and honestly to build trust with our partners, our staff and our clients.
We are committed to creating a culture of safety within the Beaufort-Delta Health and Social Services Authority by employing qualified staff, managing risk effectively for staff and clients and actively protecting vulnerable populations. We encourage and promote that same culture of safety in communities.
We respect the ability of individuals, families and communities to make informed choices about their health and social well-being. We are committed to providing information, education and resources related to the delivery of health and social services so people can be increasingly engaged in their own health and well-being.
