Mobile Hospital Project

The goal of the project is to build the capacity within Eeyou Istchee to deliver medical services via a mobile non-surgical field hospital, known as an Emergency Response Unit (ERU), which, by the end of 2025, will be deployed anywhere on the territory in case of emergency.


Working with partners

The project is a partnership between CBHSSJB, Cree Nation Government, Cree Nation of Chisasibi, and the Canadian Red Cross. 

Three project objectives

  1. Develop a mobile non-surgical hospital unit capable of operating in arctic and subarctic conditions, designed for light transportation and rapid set-up, based on risk mapping.
  2. Build up an emergency-competent workforce composed of Cree and non-Cree workers and professionals based in Eeyou Istchee.
  3. Share expertise in the delivery of emergency health services for Northern communities.
