Join the MMH Community Advisory Working Group

Northern Health is looking for two patient representatives from outside of Terrace, who live in Northwest BC and access services at Mills Memorial Hospital, to be part of a Community Advisory Working Group (CAWG) for the new hospital.

This volunteer opportunity can be applied for though the Patient Voices Network. For more information and to apply, go to: Member, Community Advisory Working Group (CAWG), Mills Memorial Hospital (MMH) Replacement Project - Patient Voices Network (patientvoicesbc.ca)

Deadline to apply is Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

The purpose of the Community Advisory Working Group is to have a table for stakeholder and community input into design aspects of the Mills Memorial (MMH) Replacement Project. The Group will provide input pertaining to local culture, practices and experience, to ensure the new facility is welcoming, respectful and relevant.

Representatives form local and regional community organizations and stakeholder groups, many of which are in Terrace, have been invited to join this group. This includes a patient representative from Terrace. As Mills Memorial Hospital provides services to residents throughout Northwest BC, however, we are looking for two patient representatives from outside of Terrace to participate and give a more regional perspective

The Group will be a sub group of the MMH Capital Advisory Committee. The Group’s input will complement and be considered along with input collected from other engagement activities and platforms.

Some of the topic discussed within the Community Advisory Working Group (CAWG) will overlap with topics discussed by the MMH Indigenous Advisory Working Group (IAWG), which was formed in the Spring of 2021. Sub-working groups focused on specific topics may be formed with members from both of these working groups.

The first meeting for this community group is planned for September 8 and the next Indigenous Advisory Working Group (IAWG) meeting is planned for the next day, September 9.
