Thompson General Hospital opens new Community Care Clinic today

Today, the Northern Health Region opens its new Community Care Clinic at the Thompson General Hospital.

The clinic,  located in Room M-170 on the main floor of the Hospital, will operate 7 days a week from 7:15 am to 7:30 pm.

It will be staffed by two nurses and a nurse practitioner.

The NHR created the clinic in order to take the pressure off the Emergency Room and to help patients avoid long wait times in the ER.

Patients to the new clinic will have to be referred there by their healthcare provider.

Services provided by the clinic will include I-V infusions, blood work, wound care and, in the future, cast care.

The clinic won’t provide primary care services or care for minor ailments.   Those can still be handled at the Thompson Clinic in the Thompson Plaza or by using Q-DOC.
