The public will now have another way to access local health care services.

In order to provide enhanced access to health care in the communities of Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs the Agassiz Community Health Centre will be initiating an Medical Access Clinic.

The clinic will operate Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. starting August 23 at 7040 Cheam Avenue.

The clinic will be on a drop-in basis only with no pre-booked appointments. This clinic will provide walk-in services by one practitioner. All other services will continue to be provided unchanged, including the centre’s “Youth Wellness Centre” which  continues to provide service from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. every Tuesday.
