Heading for another reform of the healthcare network - Bill 10

In its 46 years of existence, the Pointe-Saint-Charles Community Clinic has witnessed the birth of the Québec Health Insurance Plan, the CLSC network and the regional health boards, which were replaced by the health and social services agencies. The Clinic experienced the shift to ambulatory care, the hospital closings and the 15,000 nurses who were retired in the 1990s. It saw the forced mergers of institutions, including the CLSCs, with the current health and social service centres (CSSSs). Added to these structural changes were major reforms such as the mental health reform.
