The site provides service to Ashcroft, Cache Creek and the surrounding area, a total population of approximately 7,000.
There are 25 residential beds, x-ray and lab services, home care nursing, home support, mental health and public health at the site. Patients needing higher levels of care are transferred to Kamloops. The city of Kamloops (about an hour's drive) and Vancouver (three and a half hours away) provides urban opportunities.
