One hospital in Saskatchewan is in the spotlight for offering both traditional medicine and western medicine.
All Nations’ Healing Hospital allows someone who comes in with a particular health problem, to choose what service they want according to their physical and spiritual needs.
Todd Cappo with File Hills Qu’Appelle Health Services says the goal is to have both types of care working hand-in-hand for everyone not just Indigenous people.
Cappo has a special connection with the hospital. Both of his sons have specific conditions that require western medical care, but with this hospital they can get both.
He notes without it, he isn’t sure where they would be.
