History

Horizon Health Network and the University of New Brunswick (UNB) Community Health Clinic formed a partnership in 2016 to create the Fredericton Downtown Community Health Centre (FDCHC). This is a teaching facility that delivers an integrated program in which primary health care services, teaching, and research are combined. Horizon Health Network  and the UNB faculty of nursing are integrated into this community health centre, providing opportunities for students to gain experiential learning and to advance research and innovations in community-based health care. FDCHC provides services including illness and injury prevention, chronic disease management, community development, and outreach services, using a population health promotion approach. It is made up of a team of health providers who are all about working together in a collaborative practice with community participation and patient-centred care.
