Cowichan Valley residents who need same day medical treatment for urgent and chronic medical conditions are benefitting from urgent care units located at the Chemainus Health Care Centre and the Ladysmith Community Health Centre.
A silver kiosk containing an iPad pre-loaded with a series of survey questions stands near the entrance to the Ladysmith Community Health Centre (LCHC). The kiosk has been placed there to allow patients to provide valuable and immediate input about their experiences at the facility.

As Island Health’s new Aboriginal Care Pharmacist, Jesse is particularly enthusiastic about the relationships he is building with people in several First Nations communities, including residents of Penelakut Island near Chemainus.
