The Clare Health Center building is officially known as the Centre Dr. Lionel-J-d'Entremont
At the dinner organized to honour Dr. Lionel d'Entremont for all his years of service to the community, Warden Ronnie LeBlanc announced that the Clare Health Centre building would be given the name of "Centre Dr. Lionel J. d'Entremont". Well, it is now official, since the 21st of July, and Clare residents can now see the change on the building.
Dr. d'Entremont contributed in many ways to the Clare region, whether it was for all his home visits, or the thousands of patients he saw in his office, or his large contribution to the doctors recruiting committee. From all the positive comments we received, it was clear that everyone appreciated the work done by Dr. d'Entremont and that they were in favour of the name selection for the Clare Health Centre building.
