THIS IS BLOOM

Welcome to Bloom

Bloom, a member of the WellFort family, is committed to providing treatment, care, and support to individuals living with, affected by,  or at risk of Hepatitis C and/or HIV across the Region of Peel. We offer free and confidential HIV and Hepatitis C testing. We work collaboratively with clients in a community integrated manner to offer holistic care with the goal of improving physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. We seek to build partnerships with Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations, AIDS Service Organizations, Faith Based Organizations, etc. towards addressing the needs of those living with or affected by Hepatitis C and HIV.

Our priority populations are: People who use drugs, People involved in the correctional system, People who are homeless or under-housed, Aboriginal peoples, Street-involved youths, and People with tattoos and/or piercings.

Our dedicated team consists of a Nurse Practitioner, Counsellor, Education and Outreach Worker, Client Support Worker, and Program Coordinator.

In February 2010 the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) implemented its Hepatitis C Strategy.  The strategy created 16 Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Teams across Ontario to ensure a coordinated, comprehensive approach to the treatment and support of those living with or those at risk of acquiring Hepatitis C. The MOHLTC AIDS Bureau and Hepatitis C Secretariat  (AIDS/HEP C Program) approached Bramalea Community Health Centre (Bramalea CHC) to operate an HCV team that would also act to support individuals living with or affected by HIV. As a result, on April 1, 2012, Bramalea CHC began operating Bloom Clinic.
