Our Services

Lindsay’s Health Centre for Women opened in February 2005 to provide collaborative woman-centered primary health care programs and services for women and adolescent girls.

Our Approach to Providing Services
Lindsay’s Health Centre for Women is guided by women’s diverse experiences and knowledge. We value and encourage women’s ideas and insights about their needs and we work with women to provide services appropriate to their needs. Programs and services are designed to enhance the understanding, self-care, self-help and self advocacy abilities of each woman.

Our Philosophy
Lindsay’s Health Centre for Women is committed to facilitating the empowerment of women, individually and collectively, in all its programs and services.

We Believe:

  • Every woman has the right to make informed decisions about her health.
  • A woman’s health improves when she has a greater sense of control over her life situation.
  • Gender is a key determinant of health as are social status, income, employment, education and social supports.

Our Name

Lindsay’s Health Centre for Women is named in honor of Lindsay Elizabeth Myers, a woman and health professional with strong connections to the community. Lindsay had a deep commitment to social justice and was a tireless advocate for the most vulnerable in our society. She embodied the spirit of strength and empowerment that we aspire to pass on to the women who use our services.
