South Shore Health

Healthier people living in healthier communities.

Welcome to Nova Scotia's beautiful South Shore - where miles of coastline are marked by beautiful, sandy beaches and picturesque towns, including Chester, Liverpool, Lunenburg, Bridgewater and Mahone Bay - where hundreds of lakes, streams, and rivers flow through scenic villages and dense forests.

Approximately one hour from Halifax, Nova Scotia's capital, you can enjoy the city's nightlife and still be home for breakfast. Whether you prefer town or country living, the South Shore's safe, affordable communities welcome you.

A perfect blend of land and sea make the South Shore a nature lover's paradise. Imagine yourself kayaking, sailing, diving, surfing, whale watching, golfing or enjoying one of our many hiking trails,theatres, galleries or museums. The South Shore is home to more festivals and events than any other rural region in the province. And so, so much more.

Come see why so many others have chosen South Shore Health.

Our Philosophy

South Shore Health is committed to working with individuals, families and communities to prevent illness, provide care and improve the health of those we serve.

I love to kayak and canoe so I wanted to live and work beside the ocean. The people here have been so friendly and supportive. This community has a strong commitment to health care.

- Bill Maxwell, Diagnostic Imaging

We wanted to go someplace small and we heard lots of good things about the East Coast. It has been wonderful.

We found a home where we can watch the fishing boats come and go.

- Michelle Wiebe, RN

My family and I enjoy the many recreational opportunities that the South Shore has to offer. There's no better place to sail, cycle or cross-country ski, and there's a beautiful beach around every corner. Where else can you find all this and still be close enough to Halifax to enjoy the city's nightlife? Quality of life on the South Shore is second to none.

- Dr. Blaine Beaton, Lunenburg
