Services de santé de Chapleau Health Services
The Services de santé de Chapleau Health Services is an integrated health care provider encompassing a hospital, a long-term care home, a mental health and addictions program, an apartment complex for seniors, home and community support services, a medical centre in Chapleau and a nursing station in Foleyet.
Designated under the French Language Services Act, the visibility of their French-language services is evident. On their logo, a plant with three leaves reflects the three main cultures: English, French and First Nations. The stem of the logo depicts the letters “H” and “S” for the words “health” and “santé”. At the long-term care home, activities reflect the Francophone culture in its celebrations of Francophone days, music and French-Canadian recipes.
The francophone lens is applied by both the General Manager, who sits on several Northern Region planning tables, and her management staff as part of their planning work.
