Sensenbrenner Hospital will be better addressing the primary health care needs of patients without a primary care provider.
The Kapuskasing hospital will be providing new services such as; a Virtual Family Physician and a Locum family Clinic.
Registered Practical Nurse Lise Kozlvich says this will help eliminate the use of emergency services for non-urgent visits.
Kozlvich also says this will benefit many women in the area who will now be able to receive a regular Pap test.
She says the virtual physician will provide more continuity of care.
Kozlvich says the family clinic will provide help with the overload from the emergency department.
Both services are offered Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 4:00pm and you can access them through this number 705-337-4081.
