The Board of the Victoria Health Co-op is working on several areas:
- More effectively integrating the Co-op Health Centre (CHC) into the overall vision of our Co-op, operating the CHC more sustainably so that the Board and all member-owners can focus more firmly on our original vision of serving members and providing community outreach
- Continuing to serve our member-owners through the Members Wellness Clinics and the Health Access Fund including finding ways for the Wellness Clinics to be as satisfactory for the practitioners as it is for those of us who enjoy the “treatments by donation”, and finding new ways to serve our members.
- Continuing our community outreach through partnerships to make our Hans Kai program available to additional community organizations, restarting Choices for a Healthy Lifestyle, restarting the Back to Basics Middle School program, and looking at additional options for community outreach.
We are working hard to bring in additional MSP-funded practitioners such as nurses and psychiatrists into the CHC, a difficult task with such a severe shortage of MD’s in Victoria and Ministry of Health budget restrictions.
