IWK Health Centre


The IWK is a world-class women's and children's health centre serving over a million patients and families each year. We are integrated within our communities in locations throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and in Waterville, located in the Annapolis Valley. Patients and families tell us we provide excellent care in a unique and passionate environment. Our practice is rooted in a collaborative model that integrates talented people with new technologies, research, training and clinical excellence. We provide the most complex levels of care in our region, but we are also firmly entrenched at the community level, providing select primary and secondary care services. We're also a strong advocate for the health of families. The IWK is a global leader in research and knowledge sharing and a partner in educating the next generation of health professionals. We are extremely proud of those we serve, those we work with and our work.
