The St’át’imc Outreach Health Services (SOHS), established in September 2015, is based upon the work of the Northern St’át’imc Health Leadership which consists of the Health Directors/Leads and Chiefs of Xaxli’p, Xwisten, T’it’q’et, Sekw’el’was, Ts’kw’aylaxw and Tsal’alh.
The decision to activate the SOHS was to administer Joint Project Board primary health care services; shared outreach professional health services that align with the priorities of the 2015-2017 interim Northern St’át’imc Health Plan: Creating Health System Reform in the Northern St’át’imc Territory.
Currently, the SOHS operates as a department under the authority of the Lillooet Tribal Council Chiefs/Board of Directors. The Northern St’át’imc Health Advisory Committee (NSHAC), formerly the Northern St’át’imc ‘Hub’ Advisory Committee, is made up of the Health Directors/Leads of Xwisten, Xaxli’p, Tsal’alh, T’it’q’et, Sekw’el’was and Ts’kw’aylaxw. NSHAC provides direction through collaboration and communication to the Lillooet Tribal Council Health Manager, and the LTC Health Manager reports directly to LTC Administrator/Chiefs.
