The Medical Centre is truly a community based entity. No government funding was used for its construction. The service it provides to the area is invaluable. Mitchell Family Doctors currently houses 3 doctors. The Medical Centre is home to 2 Optometrists, a Physiotherapist, Community Care Access Centre, and a Registered Massage Therapist. The Centre is currently being expanded by 1500 square feet, in order to better service the community. Just down the street from the medical centre is a dentist's office, with two dentists and a full, dedicated staff to serve West Perth residents. Another family doctor in town operates an independent practice. The nearby Stratford General Hospital (15 minutes east of Mitchell) provides further comfort.
The Mitchell Memorial Hospital Board is now actively recruiting new doctors to service our growing community. Contact can be made through the Medical Centre.

The Huron- Perth Healthcare Alliance was founded in July 2003 by four hospital corporations, including, Clinton Public Hospital, St. Marys Memorial Hospital, Seaforth Community Hospital, and Stratford General Hospital. The Boards of Directors of the founding hospitals recognized that to appropriately respond to the many challenges facing the healthcare system, working closer together was required. Key issues such as funding instability, being able to keep and attract the people required to provide the many and varied services offered, addressing redevelopment needs, and, acquiring new technology are all better addressed in a coordinated fashion.
