MCA MEDICAL CLINICS OFFERING URGENT CARE SERVICES
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Department of Health announces that the Akwesasne Medical Clinic at Kanonhkwa’tsherí:io will begin seeing patients for urgent care services this week. This is in addition to the Kawehno:ke Medical Clinic which has continued operation during the declared emergency.
If you are feeling unwell, call Kanonhkwa’tsherí:io Health Facility at 613-575-2341 and ask for the medical clinic. A nurse from the medical clinic will triage all clients over the phone to assess whether an individual needs an in-person appointment or if they can proceed with a telephone appointment.
If an in-person appointment is required, you will be provided an appointment date and time. The following procedures will be in effect for all in-person appointments:
- When you arrive at the medical clinic, wait in the parking lot and call to report that you’ve arrived for your appointment.
- Only one patient, and if the patient is a minor they can be accompanied by one parent/guardian, is allowed to enter the medical clinic at a time.
- On entering the facility, all persons must use hand sanitizer (provided at the entrance).
- After each patient leaves, the medical clinic will be disinfected.
Due to the time it takes to disinfect the medical clinics between clients, a limited number of in-person appointments may be provided.
In addition to medical clinics offered through either the Akwesasne Medical Clinic at Kanonhkwa’tsherí:io and the Kawehno:ke Medical Clinic, Akwesasne community members may also contact Appletree Telemedicine Clinic on Kawehno:ke. Arrangements have been made allowing for Akwesasne Quebec residents in Kana:takon and Tsi Snaihne (who hold a Quebec Health Card and an Akwesasne Status Card) to utilize Appletree Telemedicine Clinic. To contact Appletree Telemedicine Clinic, call 613-938-1170.
If you are having a medical emergency, please call the Emergency Dispatch at 613-575-2000.
