Melfort Physicians Prepare to Move into Wellness Centre

(Last Updated On: November 25, 2017)

Kelsey Trail Health Region News – November 24, 2017
Physicians practicing with the Family Physicians Group in Melfort are preparing to start a new work week in a new location with a move to the new Wellness Centre adjacent to the Melfort Hospital.
Over the past week, many of the Melfort physicians located at the Melfort Mall or the Nirvana clinic have been relocating their practices over to the new Wellness Centre clinic space in anticipation of their first day of operations in their new space next week. “Although some work on touch-ups and deficiencies will be taking place during the week of November 27th through 30th, the new clinic space will officially be open for business on Monday, November 27th,” stated Dr. Eben Strydom of the Family Physicians Group.

Among the 12 physicians currently practicing in Melfort, nine will be relocating and practicing in the new clinic space early next week. Patients of Dr Eben Strydom, Dr. Jarryd Bryshun, Dr. Stephanie
Nyberg and Dr. Adewole Omolambe will access their physicians from offices at the Wellness Clinic beginning the morning of Monday, November 27th.

Patients of Dr. Danielle Desjardins, Dr. Robert Steffen, Dr. Olabode Ige, Dr. Michael Stoll and Dr. Jordan Wingate will begin visiting their family physicians in their new location at the Wellness Clinic
the morning of Tuesday, November 28th.

Patients of Dr. Pierre Hanekom will continue to visit the Nirvana clinic until Dr. Hanekom relocates his practice on February 1, 2018. When Dr. Levendall returns to practice from maternity leave, Dr.
Levendall and Dr. Watts are both expected to relocate their practices to the new Wellness Clinic space.

As a result of the change in location, several Melfort physicians’ phone numbers will also be changing effective November 24th at 4 p.m., with the exception of Dr. Hanekom, which will change effective December 1 st.

We are extremely excited to begin working in our new spaces but ask for the public’s patience as we get used to our new surroundings,” Dr. Strydom said. “One of the most exciting aspects of the
relocation to the Wellness Centre is the proximity we, as physicians, as well as our patients, will have to the hospital. The ease of accessing additional diagnostic testing such as lab and x-rays is of significant benefit to our patients and physician access to our acute care patients, as well as the emergency room, will ensure patient care is not disrupted.

The City of Melfort will be hosting a grand opening for the new Wellness Centre on Tuesday, December 5th with a wine and cheese reception from 5:30-7 p.m. A ribbon cutting will take place at 6 p.m. followed by tours of the new physician clinic. Everyone is welcome.
