Changes to Concordia Emergency Department explained


What Is Happening with Con-


cordia Hospital’s Emergency Department? With so many changes taking


place across the Winnipeg health region, it can be hard to keep track of which services are moving where, and when these transfor- mations are taking place. Te Concordia Way sat down


Valerie Wiebe, president, and chief op- erating officer of Concordia Hospital. “Tese changes will provide improved access to primary care providers in East Kildonan, North Kildonan, and Transcona while extending the hours for walk-in for the community.” Te WICC will operate under ex-

patients awaiting care in Concordia’s emergency department can be ap- propriately managed by a WICC,” says Wiebe. “Te Walk-in Connected Care clinic will be staffed by primary care physicians, registered nurses and clerical staff.” For further information see http://home.wrha.mb.ca/improve-


ment/news-180531-wrha-announces- next-phase-of-health-service-consoli- dation.php "Access to same-day primary health


services, like the walk-in connected care clinic, is an important element of community health services," says Dr. Ainslie Mihalchuk, chief medical of- ficer of Concordia Hospital, and presi- dent of the Manitoba College of Family Physicians. "Walk-In Connected Care works in partnership with other clinics to create a seamless patient experience, relaying information back to patients' primary health care providers and, most importantly, connecting patients to a primary care provider if they do not have one." If you are faced with a critical, life-


threatening emergency, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Services remains your best option, as they can provide life- saving care while transporting you to a hospital. Tey can be reached by calling 9-1-1. Te Concordia emergency depart-


ment and intensive care unit remain open until June 2019.
