Our Interdisciplinary Team
You will have time and support to take care of the whole person.
We recruited a committed team of professionals – nurse practitioners, registered nurses and practical nurses, a dietitian, therapists, community outreach workers and administrative team. Our physicians will have the support of the primary health care team so together we can address the complex needs of our clients. Community services and educational programs (e.g. diabetes management, nutrition and pre-natal) are all designed to help people take charge of their health.
Our Community Health Centre
You will make a difference to the most vulnerable people.
The Woodstock and Area Community Health Centre delivers primary health care, illness prevention and health promotion services, as well as a range of community programs. We believe that effective primary health care addresses the determinants of health, which include access to shelter, education, food and stable eco-systems. We use a community development approach to building healthy public policy in supportive environments.
Using a collaborative approach we identified the following priority populations:
People not registered with a primary healthcare practitioner; and also experience other barriers to accessing primary healthcare, with an emphasis on:
- persons with addictions,
- persons with mental health issues,
- low-income families,
- at-risk youth, and
- isolated seniors.
