Nurse takes a patient's blood pressure

Your health & well-being is our top priority.

You and your family can make an appointment to see our Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Counselor/Therapists, Registered Nurse, or Community Dietician for regular medical care. We will help you access health promotion and disease prevention workshops, as well as group counseling programs to help you improve your nutrition, physical activity, and enhance your ability to manage chronic disease.

Counselor/Therapists will work collaboratively with you to help you understand and manage a wide range of difficulties including: improving communication skills, building and maintaining healthy relationships, adjusting to a new arrival in Canada, parenting concerns, managing stress, depression and anxiety, addressing substance use concerns, coping with abuse and trauma, and information on how to connect with useful community resources.

“When I came to the clinic and talked to the staff they immediately started putting support systems in place…They get to know you. Not just as a patient, but as a person as well.” – Paula, Health Centre Client for 7 Years

What is a CHC?

Community Health Centres (CHCs) are non-profit organizations that provide primary health and health promotion programs for individuals, families and communities. Reflective of the needs of the community we’re a part of, we are governed by a community-elected board of directors. We work with individuals, families and communities to strengthen their capacity to take more responsibility for their health and well-being, and provide education and advice on helping families access the resources they need from other community agencies.

How does DPNCHC protect my information?

At DPNCHC, we will treat personal information that you give to us in a confidential manner. It is very important that your information remains confidential, does not circulate outside of the health centre in an unauthorized manner, and does not pass between staff for reasons other than appropriate consultations
