We are Building!

We are Building!

It has begun! The next time you visit the health centre, you will notice the much anticipated expansion and renovation project has begun. We are excited to transform this building into a modern, comfortable, and accessible health centre that we can continue to offer quality health and wellness care from long into the future. There will be a bit of disruption, a bit of noise so now is the time to bring you best headphones, tunes or eBook to your appointment. As well, we ask if you are able, to park in the Lion’s parking lot during construction as we will have limited parking in front of the building. Keep an eye out for our fundraising information about the building project, and take some pictures for the archives. Send them and any other comments or concerns to us at galianohealth@shaw.ca. Thank you for your patience, understanding and enthusiasm.

“Quality health care” is something we can all agree on as a priority

The Galiano Health Care Society is committed to providing an up-to-date, well equipped, community minded, inclusive and accessible health care centre for all islanders and visitors. This facility is the heart of health care on Galiano, and the home of our excellent primary care practitioners - a Family Physician and a Family Nurse Practitioner. (Medical Services)

But we are not a one trick pony, as this website will reveal. Aging in Place, Community Wellness Programs, Better at Home, Mental Health and Wellness, Seniors Walk and Talk, Transitions in Dying & Grieving, are all Health Care Society initiatives, programs or partnerships designed with your life-long health in mind.

As well, many allied health services locate themselves at the health centre: a weekly blood/specimen collection lab, the Home Support Nurse, the Public Health Nurse, the Dentist and Hygienist, the Foot Care Nurse, the Chiropractor, and soon the Physiotherapist.

We are a virtual smorgasbord of health care offerings, and very proud of it.

Please explore the wonderful pages on this website. We have tried to capture the essence of the Galiano Health Care Society and Centre.

You too can contribute to our Centre's health by visiting our How to Help pages.

Read on, to your health!

Executive Director/Manager
