The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Department of Health announces that the Akwesasne Medical Clinic at Kanonhkwa’tsherí:io will begin seeing patients for urgent care services this week. This is in addition to the Kawehno:ke Medical Clinic which has continued operation during the declared emergency.

If you are feeling unwell, call Kanonhkwa’tsherí:io Health Facility at 613-575-2341 and ask for the medical clinic. A nurse from the medical clinic will triage all clients over the phone to assess whether an individual needs an in-person appointment or if they can proceed with a telephone appointment.

If an in-person appointment is required, you will be provided an appointment date and time. The following procedures will be in effect for all in-person appointments:

  1. When you arrive at the medical clinic, wait in the parking lot and call to report that you’ve arrived for your appointment.
  2. Only one patient, and if the patient is a minor they can be accompanied by one parent/guardian, is allowed to enter the medical clinic at a time.
  3. On entering the facility, all persons must use hand sanitizer (provided at the entrance).
  4. After each patient leaves, the medical clinic will be disinfected.

Due to the time it takes to disinfect the medical clinics between clients, a limited number of in-person appointments may be provided.

In addition to medical clinics offered through either the Akwesasne Medical Clinic at Kanonhkwa’tsherí:io and the Kawehno:ke Medical Clinic, Akwesasne community members may also contact Appletree Telemedicine Clinic on Kawehno:ke. Arrangements have been made allowing for Akwesasne Quebec residents in Kana:takon and Tsi Snaihne (who hold a Quebec Health Card and an Akwesasne Status Card) to utilize Appletree Telemedicine Clinic. To contact Appletree Telemedicine Clinic, call 613-938-1170.

If you are having a medical emergency, please call the Emergency Dispatch at 613-575-2000.
