Community Health Centres began as early as the 1920’s, to meet the health care delivery needs of small and more remote communities. Now numbering over 300 in Canada, CHC’s have a unique approach to meet the needs of smaller communities.
After 40+ years of mending neighbours and friends in Pender Harbour, our health centre needs some TLC of its own. These old bones need our help, so she can be here for another 40 years, caring for all of us who call this beautiful area home.
We are a nonprofit society governed by community members, and completely dedicated to the health and wellness needs of our Pender Harbour neighbours. We are proud to work within the Vancouver Coastal Health network, and in partnership with our friends at Sechelt Hospital and Gibsons Medical Clinic.
From across the country, and indeed the world, we are so blessed and thankful to be welcoming Dr. Colin Sutton and his partner, Linda MacNeil, RN, to our Health Centre and to a grateful Pender Harbour community.
