Health and wellness
Cowichan prides itself on promoting wellness and serving the health needs of its citizens. The region has approximately 20 family practice clinics as well as independent physicians and GPs. Walk-in clinics exist in every major community, along with health units in Duncan and Lake Cowichan.
The 114-bed Cowichan Regional District Hospital is being transformed in the coming decade to meet the needs of our growing region. Two urgent care centres located in Chemainus and Ladysmith provide primary health care, and the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, Royal Jubilee Hospital and Victoria General Hospital are close at hand.
Cowichan also has a community health network, Our Cowichan Community Health Network, aimed at delivering the most effective health system possible. Alternative health and wellness practitioners in Cowichan provide services such as naturopathy, traditional healing, massage, acupuncture, reflexology and yoga.
