Internet pharmacy pioneer Daren Jorgenson confirmed he will open a walk-in clinic at William Avenue and Sherbrook Street that "stares the Health Sciences Centre ER in the face" this May.
The clinic will house physicians, a pharmacy, and a patient advocate that focuses on helping the aboriginal and inner-city community.
Sinclair lived in Sagkeeng periodically, Fontaine said, and still has extended family there.
One of Sinclair’s brothers, Bradley Sinclair, attended the press conference and was visibly upset about his brother’s death.
"Why him?" he said.
Jorgenson said he urged the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority for more than two years to link the HSC’s ER with walk-in clinics across the city.
More than half of all ER visits are non-emergency, he said, adding that his idea included incorporating kiosks into the ER triage so non-emergency patients could choose to wait at the ER or book themselves in at another walk-in clinic and be guaranteed an appointment.
