Core Values

C- Compassion

A genuine desire to see each of our patients, staff and Doctors, optimize their state of health and overall well being.

R- Respect

We honour & respect everyone that calls Lifebridge Health Centre their medical home. If anyone refuses to show respect and dignity to our team or likewise our team fails to show respect to our patients, we take this seriously. We deal with this swiftly to bring justice and compassion into the situation.
