Action team makes progress on collaborative health centre plan
BRIDGEWATER — If you build it, they will come.
That’s pretty much the philosophy of a new action team dedicated to helping recruit and retain doctors in the Bridgewater area by establishing a collaborative health centre.
“The building is the magnet,” said Dr. Peter Vaughan of South Shore Health in an interview earlier this year.
“If you look at the communities that have been successful in recruiting and retaining physicians, they have developed their own … community health centres. That’s the missing ingredient in this community.”

BDA Welcomes new Collaborative Health Centre Action Team
The Bridgewater Development Association (BDA) has formed a new Action Team ‘The Collaborative Health Centre (CHC) Action Team.
“It is through Action Teams like this that the BDA carries out its work,” said Michelle Crouse, Chair of the Bridgewater Development Association. “I am encouraged by the work this team has done already and look forward to seeing results.”
The purpose of the Collaborative Health Centre Action Team is to work closely with community groups toward creating a Health Centre in the Bridgewater area. The Action Team includes representatives from the business community, BDA Board of Directors, municipal government, physicians, and South Shore Health. A Collaborative Health Centre will provide space and technology for doctors and other health practitioners to deliver comprehensive health care services to a larger population. It will give doctors and other health care professionals a means to work as a team with others. Having a Collaborative Health Centre would be a great drawing card to attract doctors and other health care professionals to the area.
