Pacific Rim Health Services Co-operative

BC Co-op Membership Profile |

Pacific Rim Health Services Co-operative (PRHSC) developed in order to gain local control over the health care system in Port Alberni. Due to provincial changes, many smaller communities lost essential health services. In order to recruit family physicians, the community knew it had to help new family physicians overcome some of the barriers they would face in becoming established. Their solution was to create the PRHSC. The co-operative was officially incorporated in October 2006.
