The Chigamik Community Health Centre was awarded another four-year accreditation from the Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA).

“Our stakeholders can be assured that we have undergone an extensive internal and external review process that measures our practices against sector and industry standards,” said Duncan Matheson, Chigamik board chair.

Accreditation is a process that provides assurance from a respected third-party that the accredited organization meets the accepted standards for good governance, management and excellence in service provision.

Chigamik provides a combination of primary health-care services, health promotion programs and community development initiatives that are culturally-relevant, holistic and available in both English and French.

Their health-care team is made up of nurse practitioners, physicians, mental health and addiction counsellors, dieticians, and registered nurses.

“We’re very proud of the work out staff does every day in delivering quality, innovative programs and services to our community,” said David Jeffery, Chigamik’s executive director.

“Being CCA accredited is a great way to demonstrate to our clients and funders our accomplishments, not only at an operational level, but also in our business management and community governance.”
