Horizon's In Your Community

What is community health care?

Community health care (primary care) is how Horizon Health Network ensures your basic, non-urgent health care needs are met.

It includes access to a team of different health care staff at a community-based health centre or clinic.

They provide services unique to the needs of the community that extend beyond traditional health services like blood tests and check-ups.

A community- and team-based approach to health care helps prevent disease and decrease hospital visits.

Horizon is divided into five areas: Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton, Saint John and Upper River Valley.

Each area includes several communities and represents many different groups of people. For a more community-focused approach to health and wellness, and to support the development of Horizon's Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA), the New Brunswick Health Council (NBHC) further divided each area  into a community that includes a collection of cities, towns, municipalities, and local service districts that fall within the catchment area of health care centres, community health centres, and hospitals.

Below, you can access stories from 17 communities for which CHNAs were completed, within each of the five Horizon areas, starting with Miramichi. Stories from the other areas are coming soon.
