On Sept. 6, Kla-How-Eya Healing Place in Surrey opened its doors to welcome the urban aboriginal community into their new location.

The Kla-How-Eya Healing Place provides culturally safe and holistic primary health care services for urban Aboriginal clients without a regular family doctor or nurse practitioner.

The new Kla-How-Eya Healing Place is located within the Guildford Public Health Unit, at 10233 153 St., offering patients handy access to public health services.

The clinic offers a nurse practitioner and a newly hired physician who work collaboratively with other health professionals to meet the primary health care needs of aboriginal people who are not currently accessing mainstream general practitioners.

Nurse practitioners are trained to assess, diagnose and treat the health needs of babies, children, adults and elders, and have a specific master’s degree and licensing.

Kla-How-Eya Healing Place is a Fraser Health Primary Care Clinic and the nurse practitioner role is a partnership between Fraser Health and the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice.
