Project Description

Family Health Care and Walk-in Care

Please call 911 or visit the nearest hospital emergency if you are experiencing life-threatening illness or injuries.

The health of you and your family is our primary focus. Our family doctors will provide comprehensive health care for people of all ages. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, family doctors also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family doctors strive to offer long-term connections with their patients and provide care, health advice and strategies, comfort and wellness.

Our doctors, nurses, specialists and health care providers at PolyCan Health Centre care for the community in which they live and work. Walk-in Urgent Care provides treatment for patients who have non-life-threatening illness or injuries.
