|Description & Services|
|Areas Served||Niagara Region|
|Description||Community Health Centres (CHCs) are non-profit, community-governed organizations that provide primary health care, health promotion and community development services, using multi-disciplinary teams of health providers. These teams often include physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians, health promoters, counsellors and others who are paid by salary, rather than through a fee-for-service system. Community Health Centres are sponsored and managed by incorporated non-profit community boards made up of members of the community and others who provide health and social services. |
Services are designed to meet the specific needs of a defined community. In addition, CHCs provide a variety of health promotion and illness prevention services which focus on addressing and raising awareness of the broader determinants of health such as employment, education, environment, social isolation and poverty.
