Grande Cache is currently without network, landline or cellphone services

911 calls can still be made from cellphones but 911 calls cannot be made from landlines. The Grande Cache Community Health Complex remains open and continues to provide care to all patients. EMS continues to be available for area residents. The cause of the issue is being investigated by Telus.

The PHC Integration Network is a member of the Strategic Clinical NetworkTM family. There are 15 SCNs which have been established to create improvements within focused areas of healthcare, such as cancer, critical care or seniors’ health.

SCNs are the engines of quality and innovation designed to bring teams of front-line healthcare providers, physicians, managers, patients, scholars and community partners together to find, and then spread, the best care options for patients based on clinical evidence. The PHC Integration Network works with each SCN as well as PHC and other partners to implement innovative solutions to care coordination challenges that are being faced at local, zone and provincial levels.
