Thanks to a $1 million gift from the estate of the late Winnipeg Pharmacist Mr. Saul Sair, our health centre opened on August 8, 2007. Since then the Saul Sair Health Centre (SSHC) has been addressing the complex health needs of people residing in Winnipeg’s inner city.
Living on the street has a tremendous negative impact on a person’s health. Maintaining health is a primary focus of our Saul Sair Health Centre. A combination of staff and over 130 volunteer health-care professionals from many fields provide primary care, specialized care and urgent needs care for those experiencing poverty and homelessness. Services include but are not limited to:
Without a permanent address you cannot get a Manitoba Health Card. Without a MB Health Card there is limited access to health services.
We are very blessed to have the support of so many professionals who volunteer their time.
Thanks to the support and encouragement of Professional Health Associations, suppliers and private donors the Saul Sair Health Centre is well equipped with volunteers, equipment and supplies to care for our clients.
Annually 45-80 students from diverse Universities and Colleges fulfill their practicums at the Saul Sair Health Centre from within Winnipeg and Brandon and as far away as the University of Chicago.
