About Regent Park
Community Health Centre
Established in 1973, the Regent Park Community Health Centre (RPCHC) is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to improving the health of Regent Park area residents and community. We provide integrated high-quality primary health care services, including health promotion services and community capacity building. Our priority is to reduce the health inequities experienced by low-income, immigrant, refugee, non-status, marginally-housed, and homeless populations.
Our belief at the RPCHC is that good health is an essential resource for life and that access to health services, education, housing, employment, social status, gender, and the sense of being included or excluded from society, etc. – impact on our health. Health is much more than not being sick it is about being able to make choices that help make your life better. It is about having a voice in your community, listening to needs, helping others through action, and being able to hope.
