The Foothills Family Medical Centre is a full spectrum, family based, general practice. We are a group of twelve physicians who take scheduled appointments Monday to Friday. We also strive to accommodate same day and walk in appointments. Our physicians also provide 24 hour emergency coverage at the Oilfields General Hospital as well as look after hospital patients in the acute care and long term care facilities.
The Clinic is part of the Calgary Rural Primary Care Network which helps to provide resources and programs in our community for our patients. Within the clinic we access to a Behavioral Change Specialist, pharmacy support and a Chronic Disease Management Registered Nurse. We have a regular specialist clinic with Internal Medicine as well as onsite respiratory/spirometry testing.
We have been affiliated with the Family Medicine Training Program at the University of Calgary since 1990. New residents work with the clinic on a 2 year residency rotation. We are very proud of the work that goes into ensuring future generations of well trained physicians. Many of our current doctors are graduates of our residency program. Black Diamond has won five awards for most outstanding Rural and family Medicine Preceptors.
We have recently opened a satellite clinic in Turner Valley located at Bay 3, 101 Sunset Blvd, Turner Valley. This clinic is open 5 days a week Monday to Friday and we are very excited for this opportunity to expand access in our local community.
Our community based family practice strives to improve the health of our communities through leadership, excellence in family medicine, education, patient centred care and community service.
