A new clinic and health care centre is now open to the public at the Grace Hospital.
ACCESS Winnipeg West includes a new primary care clinic that connects patients to physicians, nurse practitioners and primary care nurses. Other services available will include counselling, psychology, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physiotherapy and psychiatry along with lab and dietary services.
“ACCESS Centres are one-stop shops for families and help provide more co-ordinated, accessible services,” Health Minister Erin Selby said. “Along with this ACCESS Centre, we are making many other investments built around the needs of families and seniors living in west Winnipeg including a new emergency department and MRI at the Grace Hospital, and a QuickCare clinic to provide an alternative to emergency care.”
The centre also includes new early learning and child-care services and programs including a new 8,400-square-foot child-care centre with 80 spaces scheduled to open in the coming months.
The Manitoba government spent $10 million to construct the centre, which now joins four others in the city. Two more are planned for St. Boniface and south Winnipeg.
