The IWK Health Centre is the Maritime’s leading health centre providing highly-specialized and primary health care services for women, children, youth, and families. Supported by the IWK Foundation, the IWK uses up-to-date medical equipment, leading-edge research and the latest technology to provide the absolute, best care possible.

Supporting patients across the Maritimes

The IWK provides travelling clinics that visit different centres in the Maritimes year round. Offering 105 clinic days each year, the travelling clinic teams and those at collaborating centres make accessible, mobile care a reality in our region – reducing the need for families to travel to the IWK for care.


Excellence is in your hands.
