Community Health Hub opens it's doors amid pandemic

Following months of preparation and anticipation, the Community Health Hub staff were finally ready to move into their new digs in June.

Built on land provided by the Town of Midland, this purpose-built medical building is the new home of Waypoint's outpatient mental health program and community services for housing, employment, and rehabilitation, as well as all the services from CHIGAMIK Community Health Centre.

While the exterior of the building started a few years ago, the interior finishings began last fall, followed by two funding announcements – one from the province for $9.8 million, and the other from the County of Simcoe for $673,252. This was the second installment from the County for a total of $1.28 million, part of their commitment to support hospital capital and redevelopment projects.

These generous investments allowed us to open our doors, albeit mostly virtually, and increase access to care for residents of North Simcoe by co-locating primary care and mental health supports, youth programming, traditional healing and walk-in services under one roof.

Other community organizations are also sharing the space including the North Simcoe Youth Wellness Hub, the Patient/Client & Family Council, the Rapid Access Addiction Medicine (RAAM) clinic (facilitated by the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre), the Mental Health Walk-In Clinic (facilitated by Catholic Family Services of Simcoe County), the Midland Midwives By the Bay, and the Huronia Community Foundation.
