In 2017, Greater Napanee Council adopted the community planning document, “Our Home to Grow and Prosper”, which clearly identifies strategic projects for 2018 and beyond. Based on significant public input, health care and access to a Family Physician was identified as a strategic priority. To address these concerns and address this need, Council established the Community Physician Recruitment Committee (CPRC).

The Committee is chaired by a member of Greater Napanee Town Council with representation from:

  • The County of Lennox & Addington
  • The Lennox & Addington County General Hospital
  • The Lennox & Addington County General hospital Foundation
  • A local family physician
  • Town of Greater Napanee staff

This multi-jurisdictional approach recognizes the strengths of the various levels of governments and community health care providers when working together.  The goal is to provide a local health care system which meets the current and future needs of the residents.

The role of the CPRC includes:
