Sanguen Health Centre is a Ministry of Health funded Hepatitis C agency who provides wrap around support to those experiencing high degrees of marginalization as a result of their substance use, mental health, homelessness and chronic poverty.
Headed by Dr. Chris Steingart our multidisciplinary team offers Hepatitis C nursing support, medical treatment for Hepatitis, primary care support, Peer support, Support Coordination and Outreach.
Sanguen Health Centre offers a person centred practice of care, where service planning is specific to an individual’s desire for support. Our team uses Harm Reduction as its foundational pillar. Our philosophy is that there is value in every life.
