The HealthConnection Clinic provides health care services to vulnerable individuals who have medical, mental health and/or socio-economic challenges and no regular access to a family physician.
Clients can drop in as self referrals or be directed to the clinic by family physicians, health care providers within Vancouver Coastal Health (including LGH emergency department) and community agencies during operating hours.
The clinic team includes a family physician, a nurse practitioner, a chronic disease nurse coordinator and a medical office assistant. In addition, the clinic is partnering with community agencies to support clients who require assistance with non-medical issues such as housing, income, and access to food.
This clinic is a partnership between the North Shore Division of Family Practice and Vancouver Coastal Health.
