Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics (SDNPC) opened its doors to patients during in July 2007. The first clinic site is located on Riverside Drive near the downtown core in the City of Greater Sudbury.  A second site opened 16km away in the town of Lively in 2010. The clinics are a bold step forward in primary health-care delivery in Ontario with a model of care that utilizes Nurse Practitioners in a way that allows them to practice to their full scope. SDNPC recognizes Nurse Practitioners contribution to the health-care system as vital and necessary if Ontario is to solve the current primary health care crisis.


France Gelinas, John Rodriquez, and Jacque Barbeau join the Clinic Director, Nina Hoyt and Board Members Marilyn Butcher, Roger Pilon, and Roberta Heale in the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

NPs complete patient intakes, physical assessments and refer patients for diagnostic testing.  They diagnose and prescribe medication for a variety of illnesses and monitor stable chronic diseases.  Many patients will only need to see their Nurse Practitioner. However, all members of the interprofessional team see patients and are available for consultation with the Nurse Practitioners.  The clinics have medical secretaries/receptionists as well as an Administrative Lead who support the efficient functioning of the clinics ensuring that health care providers can focus on providing patient care.

Orphan patients often fear ending up in the hospital, or even becoming an ALC statistic, by nature of the episodic care they receive at walk-in clinics and overcrowded Emergency Departments.  NP-led clinics are part of the solution to increasing access to health care for those orphan patients in our communities.
