The South Riverdale Community Health Centre offers a broad range of health care services, including primary care, health promotion and illness prevention and environmental health promotion.
Teams of health care professionals work together to help people coping with complex health needs and social problems.
Health Services Team
- Doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, social service workers and dietitians offer primary health care, counseling and social services to residents of our catchment area.
Priority is given to people who face barriers to services such as low literacy or income; housing, family and social problems; gender, race or culture; addiction or mental health issues.
Health Promotion Team
- Social workers, health promoters, nurse practitioners, dietitians, project coordinators and outreach workers help clients improve and take control of their well-being, and the health of their community.
By considering issues that affect health such as poverty, homelessness and the environment, health promoters create programs and services that are accessible as well as relevant.
Organizational Health Systems Team
- Organizational staff provide proactive planning, administrative, property and finance services to the Centre’s extensive programs and services. They are responsible for information technology, human resources and communications services, as well as maintenance.
Urban Health Team
- We offer health promotion, social and clinical services to community members who have difficulty accessing services because of drug use, homelessness and/or mental health problems. Outreach workers work in shelters, drop-in centres and on the street, as well as at the Centre.
