The groundbreaking ceremony on June 6, 2022 marked a significant milestone in the construction project for Brock Community Health Centre’s new home.
Approximately 100 area residents, local officials, donors, architect and construction representatives, and Brock CHC Board members and staff were on hand to celebrate the official ground breaking of the new health facility at 39 Cameron Street West in Cannington. The new building will bring together Brock CHC’s current services and programs, specifically, Primary Health Care, Diabetes Education, Geriatric Assessment and Community Development and Health Promotion, and will provide a community health hub for Durham’s northern communities, increasing access to allied health care services and community organizations.
Brock Community Health Centre (Brock CHC) is a community health service for residents of Brock Township and surrounding areas, an area in Ontario where, by all accounts, there has been an inadequate range of primary health services available for many years. Community advocacy by a committed group of local residents resulted in the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care providing funding for a community health centre for Brock Township residents in late 2007.
Brock CHC is non-profit charitable organization, registered in Ontario, governed by a Board of Directors, representing the communities of Brock Township and surrounding areas. Programs include Primary Health Care, Community Development and Health Promotion, Geriatric Assessment and Diabetes Education.
CHCs are a cost-effective approach to integrated health and social services, proven to improve people’s health and build stronger communities.
Brock Community Health Centre (Brock CHC) assists individuals, families and community organizations to identify local health issues and to develop and implement programs that address these needs.
We believe that good health means more than not being ill. It means access to affordable housing and adequate food, opportunities for education and employment with a living wage and residing in an environment that is clean and safe.
We welcome community members to join and participate with us as we strive to improve the health of our community.
Brock CHC Participates in the Durham Ontario Health Team
Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are a critical component of the Ontario Government’s plan to reorganize health care services and will provide a new way of organizing and delivering health care services in local communities. Through OHTs, health care providers will work as one connected team making it easier for people to access services and transition between providers, and empower patients and families in their personal health care. On November 29, 2019, Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, announced the Durham OHT as one of the first 24 teams in the province. The Durham OHT is comprised of an Oversight Committee of 16 organizations with representation from primary care, acute care, and home care and community providers, along with regional government, and patient, family and caregiver representatives.
