IMPORTANT MESSAGE:

Wondering what an “Allied Practitioner” is?

An Allied Practitioner is a health and wellness professional that provides service to Galiano residents by renting a room at the clinic.

This may happen several times a week, once a month, or sporadically depending on need. Allied Practitioners provide services that complement general health, and these services are NOT covered by MSP. Those with extended health benefits may receive some coverage. Check with your provider.

The Allied Practitioners at the Galiano Health Care Centre book their own patients, do their own billing, and often have private practices in town. They are not affiliated with the clinic or medical practice other than renting the space.

Examples of Allied Practitioners are Massage Therapists, Physiotherapists, Foot Care Nurse, Mental Health Counsellor and Naturopathic Doctors.

UPDATE: We are SOLD OUT! Thank you Galiano! There are 5 tickets left for our Scotch Tasting party this Friday. It's going to be fun, educational, and a feel-good event for healthcare. Sometimes we sell raffle tickets. Sometimes we sell plants. Sometimes we swim in frigid water. And sometimes, Galiano, we sip.
Hope to see you there.

“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
