Membership Votes on New Name

Wednesday, 05 December 2018

On December 20th, members of the SECHC will meet at the Michel and Lise Raymond community room in Alban to vote on the proposed new name for the organisation. The name Centre de santé UNIVI Health Centre has been retained by the Board of Directors following an extensive community consultation of three months. This new name replaces the existing name of Sudbury East Community Health Centre in both French and English. This new name is a constructed name from the word 'united' and the word 'vie', which stands for life in French. The Special General Meeting starts at 4 p.m. on Thursday December 20th. Please join us in this historical membership vote.

The Sudbury East Community Health Centre (SECHC) will be holding a Special General Meeting of its members on Tuesday March 6th, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Club Alidor in St-Charles. During this special meeting, the members of the SECHC will vote on changes to the administrative by-laws of the SECHC. The proposed changes will allow the full integration of the primary care services of the French River Nurse Practitioner Led Clinic and those of the SECHC. You should note that the document that contains all of the proposed changes to the administrative by-laws will be available for viewing only at the Noëlville site of the SECHC, during normal office hours, as of February 28th, 2018.
