About Us:

Somerset West Community Health Centre (SWCHC) is a non-profit, community-governed organization that provides primary health care, health promotion and community development services, using interdisciplinary teams of health providers. These teams include physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians, health promoters, counsellors and others. SWCHC is sponsored and managed by an incorporated non-profit community board made up of members of our community.

SWCHC is well known for its excellent community health centre model and its professional health services team, but it has also become a leader in offering a wide range of social services, community-building activities and advocacy programs.

Our services and programs are designed to meet the specific needs of our community. In addition, SWCHC provides a variety of health promotion and illness prevention services which focus on addressing and raising awareness of the broader social determinants of health such as employment, education, environment, isolation, social exclusion and poverty.
