NorWest Community Health Centres

The NorWest Community Health Centres provide health care and health promotion programs in Armstrong, Longlac, and in Thunder Bay. As part of a network of 73 Community Health Centres, we have been providing services for more than 20 years.

We make special efforts to serve people who have a higher risk of poor health, or people who are having difficulty finding health care because of language, cultural barriers, poverty or isolation. We consider the social, emotional and financial needs of our clients, since these factors affect a person's health. Our team features family physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, counsellors, dietitians, nutrition workers, community health workers, early childcare educators, and support staff. We offer confidential services free of charge

We strive to involve community members directly in planning and delivering programs. Peer leaders and volunteers from the community help develop and lead programs. We partner with a variety of service providers to find the most efficient ways to deliver services.

The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care funds the NorWest Community Health Centres. A volunteer board of directors governs our operations. Programs are free and confidential.

IMPORTANT FOR CLIENT PARKING: Parking is available on Heron Street beside the centre – Please be aware that Calendar Parking is in effect from November 15 to March 31.
