Dear SWCHC Community,

In order to respond to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep you safe, we have made substantial changes to the services normally offered to you. We are limiting in-person contact at the Centre and are offering phone and virtual support as much as possible. All groups, classes and events are cancelled until further notice.

Health Programs

We believe every person deserves access to health care.

We provide specialized health services to people who face barriers, including:

 

  • Outreach to seniors, Rooming House tenants and those who are homeless

  • Culturally-adapted and language-specific physical and mental health supports

  • Point of care HIV and Hepatitis C testing (this is under the harm reduction portfolio)

  • Lung Health and Chronic Disease supports management

  • Same-day walk-in appointments for health care and social services supports

  • Health care for new Canadians, immigrants and refugees

Community Programs

Our educational, recreational and social programs are offered in many languages. We empower people to develop leadership and practical life skills to improve their health and well-being. Many of our programs take place in the community, responding to specific needs. This includes African, Caribbean and Black HIV Prevention; Yet Keen Chinese Seniors' Day Centre; Income Tax Clinics and more.

Service Area

As one of six Community Health Centres in Ottawa, we serve the residents of a geographically-defined area.  We call this area our "service area". The Somerset West service area is defined as the purple area in the map and ranges from the Ottawa River to Carling Avenue, and from Island Park Drive to about Lyon Street. 

Don’t live in our service area? Don't worry! Many of our programs and services are open to everyone in Ottawa, and some also serve the Greater Ottawa Area (from Deep River to Cornwall).
