All the staff from the Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie would like to wish you a happy Canada day.

Please note that the Centre de santé will be closed on Monday July 3rd.


As announced by Premier Kathleen Wynne last October, the Estrie Community Health Center (CSCE) will extend its services to the Limoges region. The opening of the CSCE access point in the Limoges Health Hub, where services will be offered three days a week, is scheduled for the end of summer 2017.

“The new primary care access point in Limoges supports our vision of healthy people and communities, supported by an accessible and quality health care system,” says Chantale LeClerc, CEO of the Local Service Integration Network Champlain Health Authority (LHIN). We would like to congratulate the Estrie Community Health Center, their partners, and the people of Limoges and the surrounding area for their hard work that will enable us all to achieve this important goal. ”

In order to do so, the CSCE had to submit to the governmental administrative process necessary for the implementation of such an achievement. Now that this step is completed, the CSCE is in the process of preparing facilities and recruiting professionals.

To this end, the CSCE access point team in Limoges will be composed of a physician, a nurse practitioner, a nurse, a mental health therapist, a health promoter, A medical secretary. Job offers will be posted in local newspapers and on the CSCE website shortly.

In addition, the CSCE will work in partnership and in a complementary manner with other health care providers who will provide services to Carrefour Santé. They also want the community to benefit from their new facilities by making the community hall available as a meeting place or as a health and wellness activity.

Generous donations, collected by the Citizens Committee of Limoges for the CSCE, will be used to furnish this space.

On the other hand, please note that the CSCE is not currently accepting registrations of new clients for the Limoges access point. However, priority will be given to residents of Limoges and surrounding areas who do not have a family physician, especially older adults with multiple conditions and young families. The process of welcoming new clients will be presented to the community once the hiring and training of the team is completed.

Until then, any updates will be sent via www.cscestrie.on.ca and its Facebook page. Furthermore, in the autumn, the CSCE will hold a major official opening together with the other partners of Carrefour Santé. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us:

All the staff from the Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie would like to wish you a Happy Easter.

Please note that the Centre de santé will be closed on Friday, April 14 and Monday, April 17 for the Easter holiday.

Only the Bourget location will be opened Friday, April 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Transportation is often mentioned as a major barrier for food bank clients especially seniors.

“We are well aware that this is an issue for many of our clients,” says Ian McKelvie, Administrator at Community Food Share. “We first tried to tackle this problem about a year ago by opening the Finch Food Cupboard located at Chalmers United Church.”

Community Food Share will once again address the transportation issue by launching the Crysler Food Cupboard on Wednesday April 5. This initiative is to help ensure that food is more accessible for families in need in the Township of North Stormont. The Crysler Food Cupboard will be located at the Centre de santé communaute de l’Estrie (CSCE) and will be open on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month from 2 pm to 6 pm.

The CSCE is proud to partner with Community Food Share and ease the burden of accessibility to such an important resource that otherwise isn’t available to the residents of the area.

Any one requiring an emergency supply of food should call Community Food Share in Winchester at 613-774-0188 to have a food hamper prepared for them. Hampers ordered by Monday morning will be ready for pick-up on Wednesday at the Crysler Food Cupboard, at 1 Nation Street.

Food donations can be dropped off at the food cupboard or at the CSCE during regular office hours.

The Finch Food Cupboard will continue to operate every Thursday from 1 pm to 3:30 pm. Anyone requiring an emergency supply of food should also call 613-774-0188 to reserve a food hamper.

It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of Dr. Jeannette Scandar on March 1st. Dr. Scandar practiced medicine for many years at the Cornwall site. She will be remembered as a caring and dedicated person.

The CSCE wishes to extend its heartfelt sympathy to her husband, her two children, and her family and friends.

Rest in peace, Jeannette, we will miss you.

The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie’s (CSCE) Quality Services Committee would like to share the results of its Client Satisfaction Survey, upon approval of the Executive Director.

The survey, which is designed to assess client satisfaction, was conducted throughout the CSCE’s five sites between October 17 and November 18, 2016. A large number of you took part in the survey! In total, 736 people answered the questionnaire and we wish to thank you for your participation.

The Client Satisfaction Survey contained several sections, each covering an area of great importance for the CSCE and its Quality Improvement Plan: accessibility, client-centred services, equity, confidentiality, client satisfaction, and communication.

The results of the survey clearly demonstrate a high level of satisfaction regarding our programs and services.

While the results are quite satisfactory, you have indicated that you wish to see certain improvements, for instance, greater access to our services in the evenings and on weekends. For the time being, our funding restricts us from extending our hours of operation. However, should these conditions change and should additional funding be granted, we will work hard to improve this aspect.

We invite you to view the full results of our survey by clicking on the following link :
