Who does the Rural NPLC- Rosseau Site Serve ?

The Rosseau NPLC (nursing station) provides primary care to registered nurse practitioner patients who do not have another provider, during the regular hours of operation.

For the weekends and holiday Mondays of July and August ONLY there is a nurse practitioner available for seasonal residents, provided by generous donations from community members.

What is our Mandate?

The WPSHC Rural NPLC- Rosseau (Rosseau Nursing Station) is funded by the Interdisciplinary, Primary Care Branch of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to ensure that local residents have access to primary care. 

The WPSHC Rural NPLC, now has additional allied health, including; Registered Nurse, Social Work, Mental Health/Addictions, and Physiotherapy. The services are available by referral from the Nurse Practitioner and access is triaged accordingly.

What is Primary Care?

Primary care is the day-to-day healthcare given by a health care provider (ie. Physician or Nurse Practitioner). Typically this provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients, and coordinates other specialist care that the patient may need.  Primary Health Care providers diagnose and treat non-emergent episodic illnesses and injuries, but focus on health promotion, injury prevention.
