This rural region is recognized as a key partner in the approved OHT with a local primary care Physician acting as OHT Executive Lead. The common denominator to these efforts; patients and providers have all greatly benefited!
NACHC has six exam rooms, space for Provider collaboration, nursing and meeting rooms all within the clinical area.

Napanee provides a plethora of year-round outdoor activities including many lakes, forests and wetlands to kayak, x-country sky, hike and explore. A surprising number of arts and naturalist groups abound. Relatively inexpensive land and housing provide ample opportunities for comfortable living for families and singles. A short 30 minute drive to Kingston provides urban amenities like fine dining, shopping and significant arts and cultural attractions. A 90 minute drive gets one to Toronto and the big city attractions therein.
