Our Philosophy

Meeting the health care needs of our diverse communities through innovative partnerships, quality programs and services is the goal of South West Health.

"South West Nova Scotia - lobster, ocean frontage, 200-year old houses, history, picturesque villages and real people. Why would anyone live anywhere else?"

- Blanche E. Turner, Psychologist.

"I am an internist and my wife is a family physician. We came to Yarmouth 30 years ago had have immensely enjoyed our stay that has provided full professional satisfaction. Having lived in big cities in other countries, we realized after coming here, the blessings of a small town - the closeness of the community and friendly environment in and outside the hospital."

- Drs. Raj and Asha Parkash
