Battle River Treaty 6 Health Centre is a First Nations owned and operated health services organization governed by a board comprised of Chiefs representing the BRT6HC member bands. Our purpose is to provide community based health services to promote, support, and encourage the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of the people living on Little Pine, Lucky Man, Mosquito, Moosomin, Sweetgrass and Poundmaker.
Battle River Treaty 6 Health Centre is nationally accredited by Accreditation Canada which assists us in identifying goals and objectives that will allow us deliver quality services to the people we serve.

Battlefords Family Health Centre, a primary health care site, is located on the ground floor of the main building of BRT6HC, it offers physician services, nurse practitioner services, and a mental health counsellor. The BFHC is one of the many primary health services in Saskatchewan and is a partnership between BRT6HC, Prairie North Regional Health Authority and Sask Health. The clinic services are open to everyone. The BFHC is governed by the BRT6HC Board of Directors.
Also located on the main floor of the BRT6HC, next to the Battlefords Family Health Center, is the Sexual Health Clinic and the Circle of Learning. The Kids First Home Visiting Program provides urban services to children and families enrolled in that program.
