Shoreline Medical Society
Shoreline Medical clinics are owned and operated by a charitable non-profit called Shoreline Medical Society. Our vision is to be a leading primary care network for the Saanich Peninsula, integrating multiple disciplines working together to provide accessible community health care.
Vision of the Society
To support everyone on the Saanich Peninsula seeking primary healthcare, and to work towards the goal of everyone in our community having a family physician.
To promote health and wellness in our community by providing multidisciplinary, patient-centred and caring primary healthcare, while fostering a safe, enriching and positive working environment.
Shoreline Medical opened the doors of its first clinic in Sidney in July 2016. It is a new community-based health care model using team-based care to ensure patients receive reliable and timely access to health care, while also using healthcare resources efficiently. It has proved to be a successful and needed approach for the Saanich Peninsula. Shoreline Medical Brentwood opened in February 2019 with the same model of care with a team of family physicians and a walk in clinic.
Shoreline Medical Society was created by and for our community.
We believe deeply in the concept of universal Medicare, but we have known from the beginning that Shoreline would require support from the community to equip our facilities and maintain our clinics’ financial viability.
We are grateful to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and Healthcare Foundation, the Town of Sidney and a dedicated and caring group of donors for their help to get established and ensure that we would never need to limit accessibility to care by charging patients additional fees.
Our clinic acknowledges that the land on which we work is the traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the WSÁNEĆ peoples
