July 17, 2019 | People living in East Vancouver will have better access to team-based urgent and primary care with the opening of the new REACH Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC).
“The Reach centre will help connect more people in East Vancouver and the surrounding communities with the health care they need, when they need it,” said Premier John Horgan. “For people who have been struggling to access health care services, this will make a big difference in their lives.”
The REACH Urgent and Primary Care Centre is the second UPCC to be announced in Vancouver and the ninth to be announced in B.C. under the government’s primary care strategy. The new UPCC is a partnership between the REACH Community Health Centre, the Ministry of Health, Vancouver Coastal Health, Providence Health and the Vancouver Division of Family Practice.
