Update on Hepatitis C Program

Well, we are officially 1 year into our Hepatology program and treatment for Hepatitis C continues to be a very exciting area for us at Charlton Health.  With EVERYONE now being funded for the cure of hepatitis C, we continue to accept new patients and referrals to our program.

Are you living with Hepatitis C or know someone who is??  Everyone is now funded and offered the cure for this virus as Canada works hard to eradicate Hepatitis C completely.  If you have Hep C or know someone who does, please have the family doctor send a referral to one of our Hep C programs to discuss treatment.
