This is good to know, thanks! Can you tell us why it isnt an Island Health Facility? Is there some amount of people needed on the island for it to be considered, or? I am just wondering why some areas are funded that way, and some alternatively., like this. Thanks!

Is Island Health renting an office when the public health nurse and other Island health proffesional come over ?

On Tuesdays, we promote "Chair"-ity!
We have some chairs no longer needed at the Health Centre. Comment below with Chair 1, 2, 3, or 4 if you'd like one and I'll put them outside the clinic for pickup. Free! (But donations always appreciated :))

Are appointments booked through the Clinic? Are appointments paid out of pocket, ie. not part of the provincial health coverage?

Nice if she would stay

Would subsequent visits be covered by MSP?

Fantastic !!!!

Woo hoo 5 days of coverage with another locum who knows nothing about us

I'm going to the bookstore today to talk to Jim and buy a book and check on ticket sales for our Scotch Tasting!
Will I be:
a) over the moon that we've almost sold out
b) feeling good that some tickets have sold
c) very sad and doing a Charlie Brown walk out of the store because nobody is buying tickets?

Is $100 a lot of money? Sure it is. But it's also a reasonable amount for a really lovely evening, tasting different scotches and learning about them, seeing some great people, and eating some really yummy canapes served by your favourite happy volunteers. Hope to see you there. I will be there serving things and eating whatever falls on the floor.

“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
