WAHA Visitor Information

To care for our community, patient and staff we have implemented the following at all WAHA sites:

As of May 21, 2021 no visitors will be allowed at all WGH sites. Exceptional circumstances will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Please call your local Public Health Team first if you are having COVID-19 symptoms Monday -Friday.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) are available as usual 24/7.

Only patients with appointments or members of team WAHA who work at the site should enter the building.

All patients, staff and visitors must wear a hospital provided surgical mask when entering all WAHA sites.

Information for your visit:

Wash Your Hands

When you arrive at any of our three campuses (Fort Albany, Attawapiskat, Weeneebayko General), you will see hand sanitizer stations set up at each of our entrances. Please stop and cleanse your hands before entering the hospital.


Wherever possible, we have eliminated the use of products with scents or other properties that are known to cause health problems for patients, visitors, employees and volunteers. Please do not wear/use perfume, after-shave or other scented personal products in the hospital or when visiting a patient.

Violence in the Workplace

The Weeneebayko Area Health Authority will not tolerate violent acts or threats directed at any employee, physician or volunteer. Security Services will be notified and take the appropriate action.
