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.

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.
