Non-Emergency Medical Services
Open During the Holiday Season
With family doctor offices and urgent care centres closing or reducing hours over the holidays, emergency departments may seem like the only option for people seeking medical attention. This can lead to longer than usual waits times for healthier patients or those who don’t require immediate emergency care. By being educated on other options, people may avoid an emergency room visit completely or greatly improve their experience if they do need emergency care over the holidays.
NOTE: If you are in need of serious medical attention, call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest emergency department.
Central CCAC's Community Clinics
By referral only
Located near hospitals, Central CCAC’s seven community
clinics offer quick and easy access to specialized nursing services for
patients who are mobile.
The clinics operate seven days a week, with extended
evening hours, giving patients the opportunity to schedule visits at a time
that best suits them.
This supports patients in returning to their normal routine, and for some, even means they can go back to work.
Our clinics are a great alternative to visiting an emergency department for treatments.
Specially trained nurses provide care in our clinics for people who need:
- IV therapy
- Wound care
By referral appointments
Central CCAC’s community clinics are different than walk-in
medical clinics. Visits are made by referral, as part of your care plan, and by
Your CCAC care coordinator will arrange your first visit.
This will include a confirmation of the date and time. Future appointments will
be scheduled through the CCAC clinic coordinator.
