The finishing touches have been made to Bruderheim’s new community clinic, with doctors scheduled to start in January.
 
The Town of Bruderheim’s public works department completed work on the clinic on Wednesday (December 27).
 
“The Town of Bruderheim is working towards sustainability for long term, not just in terms of tax dollars, it’s in terms of services and all kinds of things. When it comes to medical support for our residents, the clinic will be a big part going forward in the future,” said mayor Karl Hauch.
 
Since establishing a partnership with the Bruderheim Pharmacy, the town was able to put the new clinic at the back of the pharmacy.
 
“We’re really fortunate we’ve partnered with the Province of Alberta, which has programs to bring medical specialists and medical experts into rural communities and our town has benefited from that partnership, “said Hauch. “We’re excited about these doctors coming to the Bruderheim Community Clinic.”
 
A number of doctors are scheduled to arrive in January, 2018.
 
Dr. Bradley Basaraba will begin on January 3, Podiatrist Dr. David Gibbs will start on January 10 and a Reflexologist starts on January 18. Schedules will vary.
 
This is the town’s only clinic.
