a) Chezlie Alexander, Director of Client Services, Bramalea Community Health Centre (BCHC), Highlighting the Work of the BCHC to Increase Community Capacity to Build Health in Local Neighbourhoods

Received 2009-874

Chezlie Alexander, Director of Client Services, Bramalea Community Health Centre (BCHC) provided an update on the operations of the Bramalea Community Health Centre. The BCHC is a non-profit organization providing services and support to individuals who traditionally face barriers accessing health care. The BCHC is funded by the Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and is one of 60 Community Health Care Centres in Ontario. Chezlie Alexander stated that the BCHC is committed to working in partnership with their communities, providing primary health care with a focus on illness prevention, health promotion and community development. The BCHC also advocates for changes to policies and systems to improve access to programs, resources and opportunities for those who face social and economic barriers to optimal health and well being.

Priority populations for the BCHC include,

• Youth;
• Isolated seniors;
• Under-resourced families;
• Racialized communities;
• Newcomers to the community;
• People who are homeless, under-housed or at risk of being homeless; and
• People who are dealing with substance use or mental health issues.

Councillor Groves congratulated the BCHC for their work in the community and inquired if the BCHC receives 100 per cent of its funding from the Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). Chezlie Alexander confirmed that the Central West LHIN currently provides the BCHC with 100 per cent of its funding however, the BCHC is looking for additional funding partners in the community.

Councillor Groves requested further information regarding the building the BCHC occupies at 40 Finchgate Boulevard in Brampton. Chezlie Alexander reported that the BCHC has signed a four year lease at their current location and have begun a search for a larger space for future needs.

Councillor Groves enquired if BCHC primary health services eases the burden on area hospitals. Chezlie Alexander responded that the BCHC focus on primary care and preventing illness and that this approach assists in enabling many of their clients to recover at home rather than in hospital.

Councillor McCallion asked if the results of the Youth Assessment done by the BCHC would be made available to other service groups in the community. Chezlie Alexander stated that a preliminary report on the Youth Assessment will be completed in October, 2009 and that the report will be shared with all interested organizations serving the community.

Councillor Adams requested an update on the status of the Community Health Care (CHC) satellite facility in Malton. Chezlie Alexander reported that the BCHC has submitted a request for funding from the Central West LHIN and a search is underway for a suitable location for the satellite CHC in Malton. The current target for the Malton CHC satellite is for it to be operational in 12 to 18 months.

Councillor Miles asked if the BCHC has sufficient resources to deal with the current and future need for mental health care in the community. Chezlie Alexander responded that the BCHC has one social worker on staff and is working with other mental health care services to provide as much service as possible. The BCHC plans to request additional funding from the Central West LHIN based on the results of the one year assessment of health care demands from the community.

b) Russ Ford, Executive Director, LAMP Community Health Centre and Nicole Ghanie-Opondo, Health Promotion and Community Relations Coordinator, East Mississauga Satellite Community Health Centre, Highlighting the Work and Partnerships of the Community Health Centre

Received 2009-875

Nicole Ghanie-Opondo, Health Promotion and Community Relations Coordinator, East Mississauga Satellite Community Health Centre and Russ Ford, Executive Director, Lakeshore Area Multiservice Project (LAMP) provided an overview of the services offered by the East Mississauga Community Health Centre (EMCHC).

Russ Ford stated that the EMCHC is a non-profit organization that provides primary health care and health promotion programs for individuals, families and the community. The Health Centre was established and is governed by a community-elected board of directors who are committed to the philosophy that health care is a right and not a privilege. The EMCHC provides individuals with equal access to health care and offers services to hard-to-serve or marginalized people in the community.

Nicole Ghanie-Opondo reported that the EMCHC provides healthcare services to people without Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) coverage as well as people without a family physician. Key programs offered by the EMCHC include a Diabetes Health Program; a Seniors Wellness Program and a Foot Clinic.

Councillor Prentice asked where the majority of EMCHC clients reside. Nicole Ghanie-Opondo reported that the majority of EMCHC clients live in east Mississauga but they do provide service information to anyone in the City of Mississauga.

Councillor Prentice requested information regarding the location of the Foot Clinics offered by the EMCHC. Nicole Ghanie-Opondo responded that the Foot Clinic is located at the Cawthra Road Family Shelter.

Councillor Mahoney requested further information regarding the coordination between Peel Public Health services and Community Health Care Centres. Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, responded that Peel Public Health and Community Health Care Centres do work in partnership in some areas as neither has the necessary funds to meet the healthcare and public health needs of the community. Peel Public Health and Community Health Care Centres also provide different types of health services. Community Health Care Centres provide primary health care while Peel Public Health does not.

Councillor Mahoney requested that staff report to a future meeting outlining the coordination of services offered by Peel Public Health and Community Health Care Centres.

Councillor Mahoney noted that Peel taxpayers currently support many of the programs offered by Peel Public Health while the LHINs are currently funding CHCs. She requested that staff report to a future meeting with information regarding the provincial government’s and LHIN’s vision and future plans for the components of the health system.

Councillor McCallion requested further information on the community-elected board of directors for the EMCHC and their relationship to the Lakeshore Area Multiservice Project (LAMP). Nicole Ghanie-Opondo reported that the EMCHC community-elected board is accountable to LAMP but brings a local perspective to the healthcare needs of the east Mississauga community.

Councillor Moore identified the need for a Community Health Care Centre in west Brampton. She asked if the Region of Peel could assist with the application process to establish a CHC in west Brampton. Russ Ford responded that funding for a west Brampton CHC would be provided by the LHIN. The Region of Peel could contact the LHIN and indicate their support for a CHC in west Brampton.

Councillor Prentice expressed concern regarding the shortage of physicians on staff at the EMCHC and asked if steps were being taken to address the shortage. Russ Ford reported that the disparity between salaries offered to physicians by Community Health Care Centres and those available in private practice continue to contribute to a shortage of physicians willing to work at Community Health Care Centres. A request has been made to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to match private sector physician salaries.
