Our Team

Our Team

Niverville Health Care Services Inc. is a non-profit organization which oversees the long-term planning and future operations of Open Health Niverville.

When Open Health Niverville was created back in 2017, the concept was of a single desk providing administrative support for all the care providers in the building. The Open Health team consists of eight physicians and six front desk staff members.

The Open Health Niverville staff and clinicians work in collaboration with staff who are employed by Southern Health-Santé Sud. These professionals work in the following programs within the clinic: Community Mental Health; Public Health; Child and Youth Services; and, Chronic Disease and Education. Southern Health-Santé Sud also employs a primary health care nurse and two nurse practitioners who practice at Open Health Niverville.

Our Providers

We have a truly remarkable collection of varied health professionals that form a complementary team. The physicians are family medicine-trained, which includes a post-graduate residency. We also have nurse practitioners who have received a master’s degree and practice independently within their scope of practice, and a primary health care nurse who has significant experience and training in wound care.

Reception Staff

With the creation of Open Health Niverville, we had the concept of a single desk providing administrative support for all the care providers within the building.

We are fortunate to have had a good, stable base of staff with knowledge on how to best direct you on what type of appointment suits your needs. We want to make your visits with us as professional yet caring as we can. Your feedback is always appreciated on how we can better serve our community.
