This new facility on the Pearson Dogwood site brings together a wide range of health services and supports in one location. This 50,000 square foot Community Health Centre will have two floors in the podium of one of the towers planned for the mixed-use campus. It will be designed to meet the health needs of South Vancouver residents, including those with complex health needs currently living at George Pearson Centre.
Integrated Care Teams based at the Community Health Centre will include physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, concurrent disorders counsellors, occupational therapists, nurses and other professional and support staff will work together to coordinate services for clients. These services include:
Primary health care services
Mental health & substance use programs for children and youth, adults and older adults
Public health services
Home health and home oxygen program
Clinics, including: dental, eye, urology, gynecology, podiatry
Community rehab and resource team
Bringing services together into one site and functioning in an integrated model that supports clients at home and in the clinic improves the care experience. This experience is further enhanced by locating this Community Health Centre within an integrated community where residents can easily access the services and supports they require.
