City Centre is home to 103,650 residents and is the second largest Community Health Area in Vancouver. The largest number of family physicians practice in this Community; a total of 578 family physicians work at least a portion of their time across 128 primary care facilities. There are two hospitals– Vancouver General Hospital in Fairview and St. Paul’s Hospital in downtown– as well as the City Centre Urgent Primary Care Centre.
We are receiving many questions in regards to physician vaccinations and community roll-out, and are working to provide answers as soon as we know, please continue to reference our Member Q&A page.
This is a first step for members in the development of PMHs/PCNs. At present, the GPSC has allocated $6,000/ physician for this process.
