As a Community Health Centre (CHC), we provide a wholistic interdisciplinary approach to all aspects of an individual’s health and wellbeing. Our Model of Health and Wellbeing places the individual at the center of all that we do, and empowers people to actively participate in healthy lifestyle choices. There is a strong emphasis on health promotion and illness prevention. We operate four satellites across Chatham-Kent including Chatham, Pain Court, Wallaceburg and Walpole Island. Through partnerships, our programs and services are delivered in a wide variety of community settings and outreach locations. In January 2016, CHC formalized its commitment to a seamless and integrated local healthcare system by committing to an interlocking service delivery model with its strategic partners -- Chatham-Kent Health Alliance and Canadian Mental Health Association Lambton-Kent. This direction and integrated leadership positions of the CKCHC builds on the work of these partner organizations, which began in 2011. Together, we are leveraging talent across the local healthcare system, building on existing infrastructures of each partner organization and strengthening the delivery of primary care, mental health services and chronic disease management for ChathamKent and the surrounding areas. Clients will benefit from seamless and timely care. The CKCHC is united to embrace change and eliminate barriers to access and equity of services. Collectively we remain committed to making a difference in the lives of our clients, families and the community. We know that our clients and families deserve our undivided attention and partnership in their care. Thank you to all our clients, families and community members for helping us deliver better care to our community that is responsive to your needs.
