In the Spotlight: Mid-Main Community Health Centre
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the mission of Mid-Main CHC is “to improve the health of clients by delivering comprehensive, accessible and high-quality health services according to individual and family needs”.
The vision for Mid-Main CHC began in 1986 from an idea originating with the Board of Directors at the REACH Community Health Centre — another Vancouver-based CHC. They envisioned a collection of multi-faceted Community Health Centres to serve the population of Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. These CHCs would share resources and collaborate in offering interprofessional, community-oriented primary health care services under one roof and, in doing so, offer an alternative to high-limited and narrow-focused private practice in medical and dental care.
The Mid-Main area of the city was selected due to the need for increased health services. The centre officially opened its doors on June 22, 1988. Learn more about the vision, services and programs offered by Mid-Main CHC by visiting them online!
