Health centre opens doors in northwest

  • Print

WINNIPEG'S newest health-care centre is now accepting patients.

The $4.7-million ACCESS NorWest at the corner of Burrows Avenue and Keewatin Street was opened Thursday by Premier Greg Selinger and Health Minister Theresa Oswald.

About 100 front-line professionals will work at ACCESS NorWest, including 22 new staff such as family doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, mental-health professionals and others. Families in northwest Winnipeg will also be able to access a number of health and social services including diabetes support, nutrition counselling, employment and income assistance and family-violence counseling.

"By locating a clinic, health and social services together in one place, patients can connect with the right services close to home to address their health needs at the time they need them most," Arlene Wilgosh, president and CEO of the Winnipeg Health Region said.

ACCESS NorWest is part of a plan to build 22 clinics across Manitoba.
