  • Context, issues : Observation: in 2015, the municipality of Montagny (3000 inhabitants) had only one doctor who can’t cover the growing demand of appointment. Moreover, many inhabitants can’t find a referring doctor. The idea to create a health house was appropriate.

    Issue: find an operating and management mode for the health house other than a company created by health professionals (the latter wanted to stay independent from the others).
  • Goals : -Welcome new doctors and health professionals, and so, avoid becoming a medical desert.
    -To find an operating mode for the future health house which would lighter to the maximum the administrative management by professional to let them focus only on health services
  • Targeted audience : Habitants de la commune et des environs (agglomération, communauté de communes)
    Professionnels de santé 
  • Actions implemented : 2 years of reflexion to identify the needs, find 2 doctors, and 4 others health professionals (physio-osteopath, nurses, speech therapist) and exchange on the creation and the operating mode of the place (2015-2017)
    -transformation of a Municipality’s building in a Multidisciplinary Health House (6 health professionals, waiting room and meeting room)
    -administrative management of the locals by the municipality (electricity, water, maintenance, air conditioning) – the professional give to the municipality a rent and monthly service charge for the working. (calculated with pro rata of the occupied surface)
