Groundbreaking Urgent Care Clinic Staffed by Hospital Emergency Physicians brings Much Needed Patient Services to Residents of Vaughan, Ontario



    VAUGHAN, ON, June 23 /CNW/ - MD Health Corporation introduces a
health-care facility that is among the first of its kind in Canada. MD Health
has recently opened a 7,500-square-foot Urgent Care Clinic, one of the largest
in Ontario, capable of delivering urgent care services to 500 patients per
day.
    Designed by Emergency Medicine specialitsts Dr. Nalin Ahluwalia and Dr.
Karim Jessa, the MD Health Vaughan Urgent Care Clinic will establish a new
standard in Canadian health care delivery. The management team's goal is to
provide a facility that can service Vaughan's rapidly growing population, now
over 300,000 residents, and currently without a hospital. Vaughan is the only
municipality within the top 10 most populous areas in Ontario without acute
care services.
    Through MD Health, the residents of Vaughan will now have access to
professional and efficient acute and ongoing health-care services in their own
community.
    The clinic, located at 9401 Jane Street, between Rutherford Road and
Major Mackenzie Drive, is conveniently open seven days a week. Serviced by
experienced emergency room physicians, this facility can be used to treat all 
minor injuries resulting from automobile accidents, athletic injuries, and
work-related accidents such as fractures, and lacerations. The clinic can also
be accessed for urgent non-life-threatening illnesses such as the flu and
other infections, earaches and non-serious asthma attacks, just to name a few.
    In an effort to streamline patient visits and optimize health-care
service delivery, following every visit a medical report can  be faxed to a
patient's family physician, keeping records current and accurate. The Urgent
Care Clinic Management Team's top priority is to staff the clinic with a
sufficient number of physicians to keep wait times reasonable and make visits
as pleasant as possible.
    When a loved one requires care, a family doctor is unavailable, and a
hospital emergency visit is  unnecessary or inconvenient, MD Health Vaughan
Urgent Care Clinic is there to serve.
