NorWest Community Health Centre
525 Simpson Street
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.
