Ambulatory Care Services provides outpatient services that need to be provided in an acute care setting (but without the need of an acute care bed), or that rely upon other Health Sciences Centre services including specialized equipment, diagnostic imaging, and laboratory services.
Except for the Fracture Clinic and blood work/lab work, these services are located at the Ambulatory Care Unit.
All Ambulatory Care clinics and services are provided on a referral basis. Your primary care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner) or another physician such as a doctor in the Emergency Department must order your referral.
Ambulatory Care Services provides the following clinics:
- Colposcopy (Urology)
- Fracture Clinic
- Medical Surgical (Minor Medical/Surgical Procedures)
- PICC Line Services
- Blood work and other lab services
- Wound care
For more information about your particular procedure or your appointment times, please talk to your specialist or primary care provider. Unfortunately, receptionists at the Ambulatory Care Unit cannot provide medical information about your medical condition or these clinics. Only trained medical professionals may discuss these with you.
