Watford Satellite Community Health Centre (CHC)
The LHIN will provide $190,000 to the North Lambton Community Health Centre to open a satellite operation in Watford. This decision was made to address the unexpected loss of the only two primary care physicians serving the Watford community. The North Lambton CHC will allocate a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals to the Watford site, providing primary care to the residents of Watford and the surrounding area.
The funding for the satellite CHC will be made available to the North Lambton CHC as of January 2008. At this time it will be the role of the North Lambton CHC to operationalize this plan with facilities and staff.
