Happy Thanksgiving from our DAP family to yours! Drumheller Associated Physicians will be closed on Monday, October 11th for the Thanksgiving holiday.
We are proud to now share our space with Sunshine Specialty Medical Care Clinic, run by Internal Medicine specialist Dr. Abdul Mateer.
This newly renovated area includes a variety of services including Holter monitor and 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. These are important tools in diagnosing and treating high blood pressure and abnormal rhythms of the heart.
Dr. Mateer is continuing to expand services and will soon include cardiac stress testing, echocardiograms, and pulmonary function testing.
October 1, 2021, is National Seniors Day!
The Drumheller Associated Physicians wish to recognize the important contributions that seniors make to our community.
Amanda and Myrna are two of our Big Country PCN nurses who share our medical home. One of their roles is to provide comprehensive care to seniors.
Join Dr. Amanda Randolph in celebrating our seniors!
Today is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is a day to honor the survivors of residential schools and their families and communities. Big Country PCN and Drumheller Associated Physicians recognize the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools and the impact these schools have had to Indigenous communities for generations. We invite all members of our community to not only to wear an orange shirt but to also use this day to learn and reflect on Canada’s history with Indigenous peoples.
If you or someone you know is struggling or needs someone to talk to, talk to your family doctor. Or call the Mental Health Helpline 1-877-303-2642 or the National Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line 1-866-925-4419. The helplines are confidential, anonymous and available 24/7.
Congratulations to Dr. Michael Beach on his new role as facility medical director at the Drumheller Health Centre.
This is a key role in providing medical leadership, patient focused care, and quality health care to our community.
Thank you to Dr. Dereck Maseka for his many years of service in this role.
The clinic will be closed early at 3pm on Friday October 1st, 2021 in order to bid farewell to one of our DAP family, Dr. Liknes.
