In these critical times, our response as a community-based clinic is extremely important. We are committed to maintaining all guidelines provided in order to slow down and limit the spread of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2).

We are doing our best in order to protect the health of our patients, our healthcare workers, our staff and our community. By modifying our hours of operation and adding virtual medical care, we aim to decrease the risk of spread and still provide primary health care for those who need it.

In partnership with community health centres and organizations,
Refuge Newcomer Health is pleased to offer Covid vaccines.
