I love that there is an opportunity to offer a donation easily and sustainably. It is important. But your comparision to for profit private online services is alarming. In Canada we have publicly funded health care. They arent the same. Might be better to compare to donating monthly to an environmental cause, or some other not for profit agency people value... I think we need to get more action from our political representatives. They need to better fund health care in rural areas particularly.

what a great idea... I donate to MSF monthly, this is an easy one to add to the list.

It shouldn't be impossible to find a doctor to live and work on Galiano Island. Galiano Island is falling victim to the overall family doctor crisis in BC. www.bchealthcarematters.com Join us at the rally to ask the government for the healthcare you deserve - you deserve a family doctor & consistent access to medical care.

Very sorry, Wine Festival Fans...we have had to cancel this year's event. Too many "what ifs" for such a massive undertaking. Maybe next year! Until then, there are other ways to support healthcare on Galiano. You can visit www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/galiano-health-care-society/?mprompt=1 and help for as little as $3/month! Thanks for all of your support. This was not an easy decision.It's with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2022 Wine & Beer Tasting Festival. The world is simply too unpredictable right now for us to make the massive commitment of volunteers and staff that it takes for the Festival to happen. We hope to revive this event next year. Until then, take care everyone. ... See MoreSee Less

“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
