Who we are
The Port Hope Northumberland Community Health Centre at 99 Toronto Rd, is a community centred primary health care facility, and a member of The Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC), the advocacy organization for non-profit, community governed, multidisciplinary primary health care models. With a vision rooted in providing comprehensive primary care services, delivered by a interdisciplinary team of professionals to promote healthy communities, we offer a range of community-based services and respond to health-related community concerns.
We believe that effective primary health care addresses the social determinants of health, including social inclusion, access to shelter, education, income and employment security, food and stable eco-systems. It encompasses primary care, illness prevention and health promotion, using community development toward building healthy public policy in supportive environments. Our care model is highly effective for all Ontarians. It is an important resource for people who encounter a diverse range of access barriers such as culture, ethnicity, geographical isolation, literacy, poverty, physical disabilities and race.
The Centre continues to accept new clients. Special consideration will be given to our target populations who do not have a family physician.
- Seniors with more then one chronic disease
- Youth at risk between the ages of 12 to 21
- Those struggling with mental health and addictions
- Those receiving social assistance

You will start to see changes as we adopt our new name, such as the logo below, changes to our website, facebook page and the materials we produce.
