South Nepean Community Health Centre (SNCHC) is a satellite of Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre. We offer primary care and health promotion services primarily to to a population of over 200 000 living in the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode areas with a focus on the social determinants of health.
The CHC model of service focuses on priority populations who traditionally face barriers accessing services, such as individuals and families living on low incomes, new Canadians, youths, seniors and rural residents.
Primary Health Care
A small team of physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners provide complete family medical care for individuals and families registered with SNCHC.
Primary Care Outreach to Seniors: The Primary Care Outreach to Seniors program works in collaboration with health professionals and other agencies to reduce isolation and support high risk seniors (aged 65 and above) living at home.
The Centre’s health promotion team will work the community residents and partner agencies to identify gaps and needs in services related to the social determinants of health, and will develop programs to respond to these needs.
The health centre works in partnership with other agencies. The following are some of the services provided by our partners at the South Nepean Community Health Centre site:
