Vision and Values
Credit: Tristan Deggan
The Foundation is committed to improving access to health care close to home.
Our Vision: We envision a healthy and resilient Bowen Island community, where every resident and visitor has access to preventive and primary health care services without leaving the island.
Our Mission: Our mission is to build and sustain an accessible, coordinated, and integrated community health centre that promotes community and individual wellness and enhances quality of life.
We will achieve this through:
We will ensure a framework for decision-making and accountability that will deliver our shared objectives. We commit to engaging with stakeholders (clients, service providers, government agencies, etc.) to build trust and shared purpose.
A Home for Healthcare
Our new purpose-built facility will deliver the primary health service requirements needed by residents on Bowen.
Excellence in Rural Primary Care
Our health centre will house, attract and retain the best available health services professionals. Our objective is to increase local access to high quality care and in-demand services by removing barriers, promoting health and wellness, and keeping our client’s needs at the centre of everything we do.
A Collaborative Workplace Culture
Our health service professionals are the heart of our organization’s success. We will ensure a safe, professional and trusting work environment aligned with the Community Health Centre’s multidisciplinary teamwork model, and we will support our team in growing in their careers thereby also benefiting every client for which we provide care.
Community Health Leadership
We will amplify our contribution to community health (e.g., food security, early childhood development, social isolation, etc.) through mobilizing existing community organizations to more effectively deliver needed programming for Bowen.
Our consistent focus on communications will increase access, improve wellness, and bolster partnerships by encouraging co-referrals and stimulating new programming for our clients and Bowen Island.
