The Rosseau and Area Nursing Station was funded in May 2003 by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC). The station initially operated out of the 'Field House' at the Rosseau Fairground. It was relocated to the current site in the construction trailer in September 2003. Seguin Township purchased the trailer and donated the land for this project. The Rosseau and Area Nursing Station is administered by the West Parry Sound Health Center (WPSHC), funded by the MOHLTC, supported by Seguin Township, and guided by a Community Advisory Committee composed of local residents and politicians.
The Nursing Station was built through generous donations of land, money, and time from both seasonal and year round residents; including the Dare Family after whom the Ruth Dare Clinic was named. The community members and local associations continue to support the Nursing Station especially as the practice and local population have grown exponentially.
The Wellness room in the lower level of the Nursing Station was designed to host health and wellness related activities. Rosseau Active Women (RAW), work closely with the Seguin township to book the room and promote community wellness activities.
Donna Kearney was the first NP at the Nursing Station, dedicating 11 years to the Nursing Station. She worked instrumentally with the community to raise funds and support for the current building. The station is currently managed by Katie Hogue who was a student of Donna's, and is now the full-time Nurse Practitioner.
