The initiative for starting Bowen Island Integrated Health stemmed from the community itself. The demands of the island were clear: more accessible healthcare, continuity and communication between practitioners and a larger diversity of services. This clinic is build by the people, for the people and our goals first and foremost are to meet the needs of the community.
Our multidisciplinary team of healthcare practitioners collaborate to provide the community of Bowen Island with accessible patient-centred care to improve overall health, longevity and quality of life. We strive to practice functional medicine and treat the body in a holistic manner as diversified practitioners work cohesively in a truly integrated environment.
