The Massawippi Valley Health Centre is a community-owned health cooperative that provides general medical services to the Massawippi Valley community and surrounding areas.
Our aim is to provide our clients with the highest quality preventative, curative and general practice medicine, along with allied health care services, in a friendly bilingual environment close to home and without long wait times.
Your first contact at the clinic (once you've met our friendly secretary/receptionist) will be with one of the nurses. In order to better serve our goal of providing not only medical intervention for health problems, but also preventive and wellness care, the nurse will meet with you to get a good global picture of your health. She’ll find out which medications you take, and if you have any allergies. She’ll ask for a list of previously diagnosed health problems and surgeries, as well as a brief family medical history. Following that, the nurse will measure your blood pressure, heart rate and get what we refer to as `vital signs'. If necessary she will check your blood sugar, weigh you and measure your height. With your permission she will discuss your eating and exercise habits, and can be a very helpful resource for those looking to affect positive lifestyle changes. Feel free to discuss any health concerns with her, she is more than willing to assist you as she can and to refer you as necessary to another health professional.
Marie-Claude Bibeau, MP for Compton-Stanstead, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie has announced that CSVM has received $49,900 to begin renovating the lower level of the clinic. This level will house the health promotion and illness prevention department. It will make our services more accessible to people with mobility issues as well as the public, by creating a covered street-level entry with ramp and railings, as well as washrooms for mobility-challenged individuals. The community space created in this lower level can also be used for physical exercise activities and workshops. Construction will begin this spring.
We have begun preparation of the 2017 tax receipts.
In order to reduce expenses, we are asking everyone who would like to have a receipt to please contact us by email (email@example.com), before February 16, 2018. In the following weeks, we will send the receipt by email unless you advise us that you would like to pick up a paper copy at the clinic.
We thank you for your support.
