About CHCF

Committed to the health and well being of the residents of Clare, Nova Scotia and surrounding areas.

OUR HEALTH CENTRE MODEL

In 2003, the Municipality of Clare was facing a health care crisis. The conversation to remedy the situation began when local physicians, Dr. Comeau and Dr. d’Entremont, met with municipal councillors to express concerns about the lack of physician care available for the residents of Clare.

During the municipal election campaign of 2004, councillors heard the same concerns from the residents of Clare.

In 2004, the newly elected councillors made health care for the residents of Clare a priority. A committee was formed and given the mandate to build a new health care centre.

Four short years later, in May 2008, the Clare Health Centre opened its doors with four doctors and the capacity to accommodate six full-time physicians. The 14,000 square foot, $4 million, state of the art, collaborative health centre is a true success story made possible by the joint effort of many individuals, including firms, contractors, workers, councillors, municipal staff and the community at large.

It is a unique health care model. The building is owned and operated by the Municipality of Clare and practicing physicians occupy the premises as tenants. Unencumbered from the day-to-day responsibility of managing a facility, physicians are able to focus entirely on delivering quality patient care.
