Our Mission

To work with the community to identify and respond to individual and community wellness needs by providing access to quality health and social programs and services.


The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving and challenging situation. In our Province we have been provided with excellent leadership. It is essential that we all follow the expert guidelines and advice provided by the Department of Health. Using Provincial protocols for screening and scheduling we are able to maintain primary care delivery here at Hants Shore Community Health Centre while ensuring the safety of our patients, staff and providers.

All office appointments must be booked over the phone. COVID-19 screening questions will be asked at the time of booking. Not every patient needs to be seen. You will be booked for a ”phone visit” with the physician. If a “phone visit” requires a physical exam, the person will be asked to return to a booked office appointment.  Patients are asked to wait in their cars, not the waiting room. Staff will invite patients to enter the Centre when we are ready for their appointment.  

We recognize that these measures may be both inconvenient and frustrating.  However, they have made a difference and are helping to save lives. We all have a role to play.  Thank you for your cooperation. The most important opinion and person we need to listen to at this time is Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Strang. No other opinions matter.
