Province Investing $1.4 Million Towards Primary Care in Oxford

The province is investing $1.4 million towards primary care in Oxford County, with the money going to the Oxford County Community Health Centre and the Thames Valley Family Health Team.

OXFORD COUNTY - The Oxford County Community Health Centre (OCCHC) will be getting a funding boost from the province.

The Ford Government has announced an investment of $1,436,950 to enhance primary care in Oxford County. MPP Ernie Hardeman says this is great news for our community

"This investment by the province in the Oxford County Community Health Centre will significantly grow our primary care capacity in and near Oxford and serve approximately 2,340 residents in our community."

Randy Peltz, the Executive Director of the Oxford County Community Health Centre, says they're happy to expand interprofessional primary care to Tillsonburg.

"The proposed initial team – Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, and Social Worker – will add primary care and additional counselling to our existing satellite team located at the Livingston Centre. The goal is to attach 500 of the most marginalized and medically complex individuals in the Tillsonburg area to comprehensive & connected medical care close to home. This will be accomplished through a close partnership with Oxford County Community Paramedicine Program." 

This funding is all part of the Ford Government's $110 million investment towards primary care across Ontario.
