TIMMINS, ONT. — A new health care facility is being built for the Centre de santé communautaire de Timmins (CSC Timmins), a dedicated site that will bring together health services under one roof for Francophone patients and families in and around Timmins.
The Ontario government is investing over $10 million in the facility and working with CSC Timmins to progress through the next stage of the planning process, which includes designing the new facility and assessing how the project can further help address the health care needs of patients and residents in the region, states a release.
CSC Timmins currently provides programs and services such as primary health, mental health and addictions and chronic disease services in two temporary locations.
The investment from the provincial government will enable the team to operate in one new modern facility and expand services to include childhood education, physiotherapy and psychology services, adds the release.
“With this new facility, patients will be able to access a wide variety of health services under one roof—all in their language,” said Greg Rickford, minister of northern development, mines, natural resources and forestry, in a statement.
“Not only will the new facility make health care more accessible, but it will also help to improve patient outcomes.”
