Our Vision of Care

An integrated, team-based approach to community care
We hope to attract 3-4 physicians and nurse practitioners to work alongside nurses, social workers and counsellors to treat the physical, mental health and well-being of patients in a multi-disciplinary team based environment. We hope to have the capacity to allow all Bowen residents to access care close to home and with a core group of physicians and nurse practitioners to provide after-hours and same day urgent services in evenings and weekends.
By creating an on-island medical hub, we can create primary care access to not only ensure the health and wellness of individuals and the community but to also address the social determinants of health of Bowen residents. Our medical home will include partnerships with other local health providers and social service organizations to provide programming and create a single voice to advocate for health care on Bowen Island.
