Ambulatory clinic reopens in Coaldale

An ambulatory clinic in Coaldale has reopened to the public. The clinic at the Coaldale Health Centre treats minor cuts and burns along with sprains, simple fractures and infections. Coaldale Mayor Jack Van Rijn, says the facility will help residents of the town who are in need of quick treatment.

“Ambulatory care in Coaldale is very much needed as a first step. Ultimately we’re looking at getting our urgent care open again. Then again after that, get our full blown emergency back. The Town of Coaldale, we’re nearing 9,000 people and the fact that our residents have to go to outlying municipalities for their basic emergent needs, to our council is ridiculous. We’re happy that this is up and running now.”

The clinic is open weekdays from 5:30pm to 10:30pm and weekends from 10am to 3pm.
