Kinngait’s new Health Centre in Cape Dorset, NU opened on August 3, 2021, and averaged 40 visits per day in the first week.
Larger than the facility it replaces, the centre serves a community of 1,547 people. Featuring new “calming rooms” for de-stressing it is one of the first in the eastern artic communities to provide a mental health safe-room environment for those in need. The facility provides more room for physicians, physiotherapists, and other specialists. It includes an emergency room, x-ray room, two dental offices, and eight clinical rooms.
Parkin Architects Limited is proud to be a part of the team led by Accutech Engineering and Pilitak Construction. We worked together to provide quick access to healthcare, much needed for the community.
