In addition: There are Covid vaccine clinics every Sunday at the Peninsula Health Unit at SanPen. It's the very first parking lot on the right when you pull into SanPen Hospital, where the white tents are.

Do we make an appointment for flu shot?

The current waitlist for lab appointments is 4 weeks. 🗓This morning so far there have been FOUR no-shows. 😭Please, keep your appointments. 😳 These
missed spots represent four people who are likely on their way to town now for a long wasted day just to get lab work done because they couldn’t wait. ⛴ We all need to work together here. Thank
you. ❤️

“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
