The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE) looks after the well-being of the communities it serves in the counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott and Russell, and strives to meet the health needs of these communities.
The CSCE interprofessional team relies on a holistic approach focused on the needs of the individual to ensure first-rate, compassionate delivery of care and services in French that is responsive to the expectations of the population it serves.
The CSCE relies on its spirit of cooperation to effectively carry out its mandate to serve the francophone community within the local health system so as to maximize access to a full range of programs and services.
The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie is committed to full accessibility of health services in French by relying on a community of attentive professionals dedicated to improving the health, well-being and quality of life of its clientele and the communities it serves.
The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie’s interprofessional approach means that professionals from different fields—including doctors, mental health professionals, and health promoters—work together to promote access to the full range of healthcare services we offer our clients. Team meetings, cooperation among colleagues, and internal benchmarks mean that the interprofessional team treats health problems in a way that takes every aspect of the client’s health into consideration, while addressing the social determinants of health.
Our interprofessional approach also means that personal information can be shared among professionals to allow them to select the best treatment strategy to improve the clients’ health.
The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE) undertakes a strategic planning process every four years. The goal of this process is to set objectives that align the CSCE’s actions with the priorities of the communities we serve. This planning work requires the commitment of CSCE personnel, community partners, and board members.
You can learn more about the CSCE’s priorities and strategic directions by reading its 2014-2017 Strategic Plan (PDF – in French only).
