there is no hospital in the community, the Armstrong Medical
Clinic serves the needs of the area with the assistance of
a public health nurse. Its equipment includes a cardiac monitor
and a cardiac defribilliar. Obstetrics, surgery, and other
medical emergencies are dealt with in Thunder Bay, with emergency
transportation provided by the Armstrong Area Ambulance Association.
The NorWest Community Health Centres provides primary health care and health promotion programs in Armstrong, Longlac, and the Ogden-East End neighbourhood in Thunder Bay. As part of a network of 56 Community Health Centres, NorWest CHC has been providing services for more than 10 years.
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care funds the NorWest Community Health Centres. A volunteer board of directors governs our operations and NorWest CHC has an advisory committee of Longlac residents.
NorWest CHC makes special efforts to serve people who have a higher risk of poor health, or people who are having difficulty finding health care because of language, cultural barriers, poverty or isolation. They consider the social, emotional and financial needs of their clients, since these factors affect a person's health.
NorWest CHC team features family physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, counsellors, dietitians, nutrition workers, community health workers, early childcare educators, and support staff.
