Nov. 21 – Public Open House CEEH Health Care Village

Posted: November 6, 2017


The public is invited to attend an Open House regarding the Health Care Village and CEEH Master Plan project on November 21, 2017 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, Petrolia.   A presentation of information gathered for the project will be made at 7:00 p.m.  The public is encouraged to engage in a discussion.

 The Health Care Village would be a community health hub that is intended to be a multi-purpose and adaptable space that is used by multiple providers to deliver a basket of services, including housing for seniors and affordable housing, that are tailored and adapted over time to meet the changing needs of our community as we move into the future. “We have an extraordinary opportunity to work alongside Bluewater Health, our doctors, and our healthcare service providers to create a model for rural healthcare.” said Mayor John McCharles.

 Recognizing that there will be broad changes to the community’s demographics and health-care needs, the Town of Petrolia and Bluewater Health are working together to create a Health Care Village that offers collaboration between different community agencies and service providers to respond to local needs in an efficient and sustainable way. This includes appropriate housing and improved access to services and offers better outcomes for people by providing access to early-intervention programs and circle of care services.
