It provides front-line health and social services, including prevention, assessment, diagnosis and treatment, rehabilitation and support services, to the population of the Hudson Bay Territory, which is composed of approximately 7,000 people. In addition, it provides youth protection services and management, for the Nunavik region, of Ullivik, located in Dorval.

The Inuit population is spread over seven communities along the Hudson Bay coast, from Kuujjuaraapik to Salluit.
Under the authority of the Hospital Services Coordinator, the individual assesses nutritional status; determines and implements an intervention strategy to adapt food according to needs to maintain or restore health; develops the required nutritional programs; and is responsible for the care and follow-up of users requiring nutritional intervention. The individual conducts a global assessment of the user's condition and determines the objectives of his or her intervention; decides on nutritional treatment and ensures client follow-up; participates in the development and adaptation of nutritional tools and acts as an expert advisor and support to co-workers in the institution.
