Delburne Medical Centre
DELBURNE MEDICAL CENTRE
September 2018 Update
Concrete, wood and steel are moving quickly on site as walls are up at the Delburne Medical Centre. With the major structural elements now finished, we will soon have the basic building shell complete including the siding, roofing and windows. We are excited to have the exterior work done before the uncertain fall weather comes upon us.
We have had a number of questions regarding the concrete block wall on the east side of the project. It is a fire-resistant wall that will allow for further development on the adjacent lots. The large supports that are currently in place will be removed once the framing has been complete and the wall is securely braced.
The Delburne Medical Centre will have two main areas that access from the Main Street entrance. Last month we reviewed some of the features of the clinic. On the corner of the property, right next to the clinic will be a dedicated pharmacy space. Having a pharmacy on-site will provide a convenient option for residents who are looking to filling prescriptions as well as the opportunity for additional pharmacy services. There will be a dedicated private consultation space where pharmacists can meet with patients to review medications and ensure they are being taken properly. Additional retail space is planned to offer over-the-counter medica-tions, medical supplies, health supplements and more. The goal is that the Delburne Medical Centre will be your one-stop-shop for total health and wellness.
Based on a recent meeting with the Village Council, the opening date for the clinic will be in early 2019. This will allow for sufficient time to complete construction, set up equipment, recruit staff and start-up operations. We are finalizing the details for residents to sign-up as patients of the new clinic starting in October. We will also be looking to hire front desk, administrative and nursing staff. Please see www.delburnemedical.ca for more details and to be added to our email list.
August 2018 Update
Construction work on the Delburne Medical Centre is full speed ahead during these long sum-mer days. Work on the foundation has been completed and we are installing the plumbing, me-chanical and electrical systems. Work will then start on the structure that will house the Del-burne Medical Clinic and Pharmacy.
In the Delburne Medical Clinic, there will be eight exam rooms and a procedure room providing space for four physicians to practice in the future. The clinic will be equipped with the latest in medical technology allow-ing for a range of services to be provided. At least two physicians, in addition to Dr. Muti Kauchali, are planning to provide general family medicine when the clinic opens. There will be a patient sign-up event this fall so that interested folks can pre-register. Stay tuned to www.delburnemedical.ca for more details.
