The Dr. Charles L. LeGrow Health Centre in Port Aux Basques was opened in 1984, replacing the Channel-Port Aux Basques cottage hospital which was the first built by the new provincial government in 1952.
The LeGrow Health Centre provides primary, secondary and long term care services to the Southwest coast of the island, taking in a catchment area of 9000 people. It has been recognized provincially and nationally as a Primary Health Care Centre that provides service through an interdisciplinary team approach. The centre is a 44 bed facility with 26 beds for long term care, 2 beds for slow paced rehab, 2 beds for respite care and 14 acute care beds (which includes 2 ICU beds and 1 palliative care room). Health services provided in the area include, nurse practitioners, social work, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, recreation therapy, speech/language pathology, dietitian, laboratory, x-ray and ultrasound amongst other services. LeGrow Health Centre provides emergency services and a wide range of ambulatory care services, including chemotherapy, dialysis, Telehealth and Preadmission clinic. The health centre operates three medical clinics at Doyles, Rose Blanche and La Poile. La Poile is an isolated community and travel to the clinic is usually done by helicopter. Western Health also operates 21 apartment seniors’ building and 20 seniors’ cottages located adjacent to the health centre. Site set up date: October 11, 2018
