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.
