This new facility on the Pearson Dogwood site brings together a wide range of health services and supports in one location. This 60,000 square foot Community Health Centre, will have three floors in the podium of one of the tower 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 on the Pearson Dogwood site.
Integrated Care Teams based at the Community Health Centre include physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, concurrent disorders counsellors, occupational therapists, nurses and other professional and support staff who will work together to coordinate services for clients. This includes:
- 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

Bringing services together onto one site and functioning in an integrated model that supports clients at home and in the clinic improves the care experience for patients. This is further enhanced by locating this Community Health Centre within an integrated community where residents can easily access the services and supports they require.
