Strategic Aims

Build Capacity in Neighbourhoods we Prioritize

The Guelph CHC’s goal is to provide clinical, and community health services to those with trouble getting better healthcare. We are able to provide these services and care by reaching out to the Guelph neighbourhoods we prioritize. By removing health inequities, heathier and brighter futures can be made possible for its residents. Our staff, partners and greater community are able to support and give residents the right and ability to take charge of their own health.

Engage in Collective Action to Advance Health and Well-Being for All

Our promise to the priority populations we serve is to meet their needs by addressing the social determinants of health (SDOH). There are a variety of factors that affect a person’s health which are defined through the SDOH. GCHC takes a step towards exploring the many health-impacting factors on how we can better help our clients’ overall health and well-being.

Demonstrate Continual Quality Improvement

Quality improvement is a practise that involves testing new ways, for example, running programs and services. As an organization, Guelph CHC, is committed to ongoing quality improvement practices. Through participation it allows staff to reflect and learn from tests of change to provide even better programs and services.

Provide Hope Inspiring Person Centered Care

The populations we prioritize are made up of vulnerable populations including those that are homeless, low income, with mental health and addictions issues, Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ++ and vulnerable children. It is through our special services and programs that we can provide hope and inspiration for both clients and staff alike. Our focus is to make sure we provide responsive, client-centred, high quality care in a well-organized and timely manner to support our clients in their greatest time of need

Strengthen our Culture of Excellence

The basis of GCHC is the quality of its staff and the ability of that staff to carry forward the needs of the populations we prioritize. In order to do this, GCHC will continue to promote and encourage staff to take part in both internal and external professional growth opportunities, spark and support novel ideas, and leadership opportunities.

Delivery Early Help and Prevention for Children and Families

Vulnerable children and families will be served through prevention, reduction of negative childhood experiences and building strength in young children to promote long-term health and wellbeing.

Ten Year Vision 2015-2025

The Guelph Community Health Centre has changed its strategic aims to meet the needs of the community and clients. With input from community partners, staff, and the Board of Directors, the new strategic aim was created in early 2015 marking the beginning of a new era.

Health Equity is at the core of what we do at the Guelph Community Health Centre and each of 6 strategic aims all support how it can be met. This is why the pinwheel is a perfect symbol; the centre button (Health Equity) brings all the wings (the 6 strategic aims) of the pin all working together as one.
