Medical Centres & ServicesCommunity Resources
Supporting Team Excellence with Patients Society (STEPS) was incorporated on April 11, 2017 as a British Columbia Society whose purpose is to lead innovation in the provision of interdisciplinary team-based primary health care with the goal of developing a successful model of primary care delivery that can be adopted by others. STEPS aims to achieve this by developing a community health centre with an environment that, while fostering the accessibility, quality, innovation and comprehensiveness of health care in the Thompson-Caribou-Shuswap regions, will offer a range of primary health, social, rehabilitation and other services in partnership with health care agencies as deemed necessary to assist in achieving optimum health status for each individual or group who seek assistance. The patient, (individuals, couples and multigenerational families) will be a member of their own health care team. STEPS will encourage diversity in both professional and office staff so that health care provision practices will seek to understand, accept and incorporate cultural, social and lifestyle practices into health care planning with each person, family or group.
