CHELSEA, QC, Feb. 14 2020 / CNW Telbec / – The Minister of Families and Minister responsible for the Outaouais region, Mathieu Lacombe, announces today, on behalf of the Minister of Health and Social Services, Danielle McCann, post of four assistants to the Department of Multidisciplinary and Community Services (DSMC) of the Outaouais Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS), in order to better meet the needs of the population of the region. In addition to the establishment’s management teams, there will be three coordinators in peripheral hospitals. DSMC assistants will be important players in the community. They will coordinate services and facilitate communication with the various partners located in the CISSS territories. The appointed assistants are: Frédéric Parizeau, for the Territoire des Collines de l’Outaouais; Alexandre Bergevin, for the Territoire de Papineau; Nicole Chaput, for the Pontiac Territory; Isabelle Labelle-Richard, for the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau Territory. The three coordinators of peripheral hospitals are: François-Régis Fréchette, at the Maniwaki Hospital and at the Wakefield Hospital; Gilbert Daoust (acting), at the Shawville Hospital; Carl Lavoie, at Buckingham Hospital.
“The addition of these people to the CISSS teams will make it possible to offer better services to the population of each territory, in a way better suited to the reality of these diverse communities. Very quickly, they will become a reference in their community, knowing better than anyone else the needs of users, by constantly being on the lookout for real issues at the local level. We are very proud to support such an initiative, which is part of our efforts to favor a population-based approach that better meets the expectations of Quebeckers in each region.
In the news release, Danielle McCann, Minister of Health and Social Services, added, “I am delighted with this announcement, which confirms the attention our government is paying to the health needs of people here. This addition of human resources will undoubtedly consolidate the efforts of the CISSS to better serve the regions of the region. These new managers will allow the establishment to be better anchored in the community, close to the reality of the users. It is a unique model of service organization, and I encourage these people to dare to do things differently, in innovative ways, for the benefit of our community. “
