Locally Driven Health Care Our shared specialist clinic will provide culturally safe access to medical care close to home; allowing for family support and increased privacy within a familiar environment. The clinic will create a consistent work environment for specialists and therapists where personalized medical treatment plans can be coordinated directly with local care providers.
Improved Health Outcomes For Our Communities The visiting specialist programs have outgrown the space available at Bella Bella Medical Clinic, R.W. Large Memorial Hospital and the Heiltsuk Health Centre. Expanding and sustaining the programs are key to improving the health outcomes of the residents of our Central Coast communities. The new space will feature: Purpose-built exam and interview space for 1800+ visiting specialty and therapy consults per year, virtual care and telehealth expansion, after hours wellness programs, and mental health support programs.
