Ministry of Health: Third urgent and primary care centre opens in Greater Vancouver

August 8, 2019 | People living on the North Shore will soon have better access to team-based everyday health care with the opening of the new North Vancouver Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC).

“The North Vancouver UPCC will help connect more people in North Vancouver and the surrounding communities with the health care they need, when they need it,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “Thousands of area residents who currently lack a primary care provider will benefit from increased access to same day appointments for urgent needs and ongoing primary care.”

The North Vancouver UPCC is the third UPCC to be announced for Greater Vancouver and the 10th to be announced in BC under the government’s primary care strategy. The new UPCC will be operated by Vancouver Coastal Health. Partners include the Ministry of Health, the North Shore Division of Family Practice and Seymour Health Group, and with support of Squamish Nation and the Tsleil-Waututh Nation.
