Health centre celebrates year of care

November marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Sorrento & Area Community Health Centre

November marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Sorrento & Area Community Health Centre, which has quickly become an established part of the community.

In just a year, nurse practitioner Judy Deringer is booked solidly on most days providing primary health-care services to residents and visitors of the area so they do not have to travel to Chase or Salmon Arm.

She can generally see patients on the same day but, if not, next-day appointments are always available. Call 250-803-5251 for an appointment. This is not a walk-in clinic.

The centre is located above Munro’s Sorrento Prescriptions in the heart of Sorrento, with access from the rear laneway.

Appointment hours are Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to  4 p.m.

Join the celebration and check out the centre on Wednesday, Nov. 19 from 4 to 6 p.m.
