No one in Li­moges was sca­red of Fri­day the 13th. That was plain to see as area re­si­dents, di­gni­ta­ries and others ga­the­red to mark the of­fi­cial grand ope­ning of the new Li­moges Health Hub, avai­lable to re­si­dents from all around the Pres­cottRus­sell re­gion.

The Li­moges Health Hub (LHH) is a one-stop shop for a va­rie­ty of com­mu­ni­ty health ser­vices, in­clu­ding a Den­tal Centre, a Guar­dian Phar­ma­cy, the Pres­cott-Rus­sell Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices, the Centre de san­té com­mu­nau­taire de l’Es­trie and the NA­TION Health Centre. The Li­moges Health Hub has been an on­going pro­ject for the past six years and has meant count­less hours for mem­bers of the Li­moges Health Hub Vo­lun­teer Com­mit­tee.

“It has been a long time in the plan­ning and I am ve­ry plea­sed to see this dream be­come a rea­li­ty,” said Shir­ley Ra­cine, pre­sident of the Li­moges Health Hub Vo­lun­teer Com­mit­tee. “I am confident that the re­si- L’ou­ver­ture of­fi­cielle du Carrefour san­té Li­moges a eu lieu le ven­dre­di 13 oc­tobre. Le Carrefour san­té Li­moges offrent plu­sieurs ser­vices de san­té à un seul en­droit, soit le Centre den­taire Li­moges, la phar­ma­cie Guar­dian, les Ser­vices com­mu­nau­taires de Pres­cott-Rus­sell, le Centre de san­té com­mu­nau­taire de l’Es­trie et la cli­nique Centre de San­té NA­TION. Ce projet a été fi­na­le­ment après six ans de tra­vaux et a coû­té ap­proxi­ma­ti­ve­ment 5,5 M$. dents of Li­moges and our neigh­bou­ring com­mu­ni­ties will em­brace these ser­vices.”

The Health Hub is al­rea­dy ser­ving a couple hun­dred pa­tients through all of its ser­vices and more clients are ex­pec­ted in the ve­ry near fu­ture. Saint Jo­seph De­ve­lop­ments built and owns the Li­moges Health Hub, with the me­di­cal prac­tices ser­ving as te­nants. The Hub is 15,000 square feet, has three floors, state-of-the-art equip­ment, and cost about $5.5 mil­lion to construct. The vo­lun­teer com­mit­tee set a goal to fun­draise for $170 000, which would co­ver the amount nee­ded to fur­nish and equip the Health Centre. Ha­ving al­most rea­ched that goal, it is es­ti­ma­ted to be rea­ched in the next few weeks.
