Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will be making temporary changes in the way we deliver your care. Our goal is to minimize potential exposure to as many as possible while freeing up resources to attend to those who require urgent care.
As of Monday March 16, 2020 we will no longer be booking routine appointments. If you have a booked appointment, we will be calling you to postpone it or amend this appointment.
Examples of routine appointments include:
Periodic health visits, annual physicals, PAP tests and clinics, Well Baby Checkups (where an immunization is NOT required), blood work, chiropody and foot care appointments, lung health appointments, weight management appointments and memory care clinic.
Additionally we will be reviewing our schedules. Those that can be accomplished safely by phone or virtual visit (information to follow) will be booked as such. Those visits that are of a more urgent nature and require an in-person visit, will still be offered this option.
All group visits will be postponed until further notice.
Examples of Group visits:
medical visits for diabetes, memory care clinics, COPD group education and all community group programs.
In order to help reduce the spread of the virus- we ask for your help. If you have respiratory symptoms, cough fever, difficulty breathing we ask that you stay home and call our office or public health:
Lanark Leeds Grenville Public Health Unit: 1-800-660-5853
Renfrew County and District Public Health Unit: 613-735-8654 x577
If you are running out of medication please ask the pharmacy to fax the renewal request to the community health centre.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this. These changes will be regularly assessed and are in place until further notice.

Lanark Renfrew Health & Community Services is an incorporated, non-profit umbrella organization which provides community-based primary health care and health promotion programs and services and a range of developmental and social services in Lanark, Renfrew, and Leeds and Grenville counties.
In June of 2013, our name was changed from “Lanark Health and Community Services” to “Lanark Renfrew Health & Community Services” to better reflect the scope of our Organization.
Lanark Renfrew Health & Community Services is composed of the following “parts”:
- Lanark Community Programs
- North Lanark Community Health Centre (including the Mental Health Support Project)
- Whitewater Bromley Community Health Centre
While we are one incorporated organization, each part of LRHCS has its own:
- core funding agencies;
- programs and services;
- target populations;
- and rich histories.
