New! The Rural Health Hub has released its Arnprior COPD Exercise Guide to help those in our community living with COPD find local exercise classes and programs that are right for them.

Arnprior and Area Rural Health HUB

Like many rural areas, Arnprior faces challenges in ensuring the right mix of health care services is available to meet the needs of our local community. In response to these challenges, we have begun to work collaboratively to improve access, strengthen efficiencies and enhance the quality of health care in our community. Arnprior Regional Health is one of five organizations that are committed to working together through an innovative system re-design to better meet the unique needs of our rural community. Through the Arnprior and Area Rural Health Hub (AARHH), we will improve the health of members of our community, build long-term, sustainable partnerships and find efficiencies in how we deliver care.

The first phase of this project focuses on diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Our initial aims are to work together to create a positive impact on COPD and diabetes health status and to improve the experience of care for people living with COPD or/and diabetes, and their providers. We will take what we learn from this first phase and expand in the future.

We welcome your input. If you have questions about the AARHH, please contact Jason Moore (JMoore@arnpriorhealth.ca) to learn more.
