How the Community Health Centre fits
The Bowen Island Community Health Centre is owned and operated by the Bowen Island Health Centre Foundation — a registered charity with no direct link to the Municipality. Private donations will pay for the building’s construction and equipment. Funding for ongoing operations comes primarily from the provincial Ministry of Health and MSP Services — a close-to-home example of your provincial tax dollars at work.
We are fortunate to have two new health care facilities opening on the island. Bowen Island Integrated Health is a privately owned and operated, fee-for-service clinic. Ours is publicly funded and provides access to doctors, nurses, social workers and other health care services. We will focus on meeting the needs of all people on Bowen, whether or not they are attached to the current physicians.
