Discharge Coordination & Planning

Our Regional Discharge Planning Coordinators may work as part of your health-care team to plan patient discharges. Our goal is to make sure that everyone involved (community, government, health facilities, etc.) has a plan for you or your family member as they leave hospital. This may involve planning health care in the home community, transportation, housing and medical equipment.

If you or someone you know is receiving medical care in Winnipeg, access these services by calling toll-free 1-877-940-8880. You can also ask your health-care provider to call WRHA Indigenous Health for you.

Why call WRHA Indigenous Health for patient services? Call if you or your family member:

  • speak an Indigenous language
  • is being discharged
  • want a patient advocate
  • want ceremonies or traditional medicines
  • need additional support
  • are not sure if you need us – we can do an assessment to assist you
