Brock CHC In Brief

Building a Healthier Community

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.  The Board is elected annually from the organization’s membership.  Brock CHC’s Letters Patent were issued in 2002.

Brock Community Health Centre

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.  The Durham OHT received the green light from the Ministry of Health (MOH) to submit a full application, which is the next phase of a multi-phase process to become an OHT.  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.  The deadline to submit a full application is October 9, 2019, with the MOH expected to announce the first OHTs in late Fall 2019.
