30 Years of Excellence in Comprehensive Healthcare as Primary Care Clinic
Comprehensive primary healthcare is designed to be the first point of contact in the healthcare system. It refers to health promotion, prevention of diseases, and support services such as staffing, infrastructure, and management.
A 2015 report by the Canadian Nurse Association stated the main principle of primary healthcare is to provide accessible and equitable healthcare to all. Currently, the costs of hospital-based healthcare are rapidly increasing. This is where the importance of a primary care clinic is crucial than ever before.
Contribution of the Med-Stop Medical Clinic Group to Primary Healthcare System in Calgary
Thirty years ago, we started with a dream. The dream was to provide a wide range of quality primary healthcare services to Calgary residents of all age groups.
With that resolution, we opened our first primary care clinic in 1988, managed by a team of highly-qualified full-time doctors and registered nurses. Their commitment and dedication to serve people of all ages would become the hallmark of our three-decade old legacy.
We believe that personal and dedicated primary care is the most vital step in disease prevention and health promotion. We also believe that quality primary healthcare should be accessible to every resident of Calgary.
Looking back on 30 years of The Med-Stop Medical Clinic Group
Three decades after embarking on a journey to improve primary healthcare, we now turn back to see how far we have come and ask ourselves some important questions –
“How have we changed in all these years?”
“How have our services evolved?”
“What has been our practice in the last 30 years?”
The dream, mission, and passion remain the same as it was on the first day. The only thing that has changed is our scale of operations. From just one clinic to five clinics different neighborhoods in the city (Bowness, Brentwood, Heritage, Midpark, and Richmond Road), we have come a long way. These are operated by professional, experienced, and dedicated staff members and family doctors.
The Evolution of Our Services
To provide effective and prompt primary care to Calgary residents, we have three walk-in medical clinic locations – Brentwood Family Medical Centre, Heritage Family Medical Centre, and Richmond Road Family Medical Centre. These walk-in centres will enable patients to benefit from our primary care services without a prior appointment.
