ActiveCare is pleased to announce the opening of another clinic location on August 20, 2018, in the Beaverbrook area of Kanata at 39 Leacock Way. Dr.H.Daverne and Dr.S.Dawson have relocated their practices to the new clinic and we are very fortunate to have three new physicians who are also practicing at the Beaverbrook clinic (Dr.S.Vickery, Dr.C.Mykytyshyn and Dr.S.Ziai). At the present time, we are placing potential patients on a wait list.
ActiveCare family physicians are members of a FHO (Family Health Organization) which allows our enrolled patients access to THAS (Telephone Health Advisory Service).This service is available to FHO patients when our clinic is not open. You will be connected to a nurse who will ask a series of questions to assess your health concerns and be provided with health care advice so that you can manage your care at home or be advised to see your doctor or nurse practitioner within a few days. In some cases, the nurse will contact an on-call doctor to discuss your symptoms and determine the most appropriate course of action, or the nurse may advise you to go to the nearest emergency department. With your consent, the nurse will send information to your health care provider about your call to the T.H.A.S. THAS can be reached at 1-866-553-7205. The Kanata ActiveCare clinic no longer offers an open walk-in service. As a Family Health Organization, we hope to offer comprehensive care to our enrolled patient population. We do continue to keep a waiting list for individuals without physicians and hope to be able to accommodate more patients. We are aware of the adjustment to our community but we believe that in time, this will allow us to keep our commitment to our patients and those needing medical care in the future. **PLEASE READ THE “NEWS” SECTION FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OUR PATIENTS**
