Did you know...

That the health centre relies on Membership and Donations for more than 10% of our operating costs each year?

It's a tough time for everyone right now. We get that. But if you have a little bit to spare, please consider pledging someone or someones (Go, Trio of Dads, Go!) for the Polar Brrr on January 1. Or dunk yourself!

We've made it really easy: www.zeffy.com/en-CA/fundraising/e926d01b-dfc1-4c8e-af8d-dbdcc2792def

Thank you Galiano! Stay warm and safe.

Question: can we take pledges but do the plunge on the 31st instead? We’re on the morning ferry out to the mainland on the first but want to participate!

**Please note change in location for the DECEMBER 7th clinic - it will be at the Lions Hall.** ... See MoreSee Less

Well, the 2023 Polar Brrrr Swim training for team TOD is officially underway!

The waters were pristine, yet too frigid to attempt for these Trio of Dad's. And it's not going to get any warmer that's for sure. Please help boost their confidence by making a pledge.

***All proceeds go towards the Galiano Health Care Society.

You can make a pledge to sponsor team TOD or form your own team! Paper pledge forms are available at the Daystar Market, the Galiano Bookstore, the Activity Centre and the Galiano Health Care Centre.

Check out our online pledge link:

Thanks very much for your support.
We look forward to seeing many of you at this fun filled community event!

“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 – Two Family Physicians 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 & Community Care Nurse, the Public Health Nurse, the Dentist and Hygienist, the Foot Care Nurse, the Chiropractor, and 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!

Linda Ruedrich,

Executive Director/Manager
Galiano Health Care Society
