OUR VISION :
'NO OBSTACLES TO HEALTH"
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
* WHO Definition of Health
At North Hamilton Community Health Centre, we commit to this definition and work with clients to develop individual, family and community health and wellness goals.
The Health Centre acknowledges that the broad determinants of health have a tremendous impact on our health and wellness. Things like education, housing, food security, equity, gender, environment, accessibility, the sense of being included or excluded from society, employment and others all play a role in how healthy we are. The Health Centre provides care through an interdisciplinary team who offer a wide range of services and programs, with a unified approach to health and wellness.
The Health Centre is in partnership with clients, families and communities to enable health through healing, hope and wellness. We support "self management" or "self-responsibility", acknowledging that each individual has time and talent to take control of their own health goals, and the health centre provides tools and expertise to enable those goals.
