Urgent Care facilities within Alberta Health Services are non-hospital, unscheduled care facilities established by Alberta Health Services to meet the urgent medical care needs of patients not requiring hospital-level care. Urgent care centres provide extended hour access for unexpected, but non-life-threatening health concerns, which require same day or evening treatment. Patients coming to urgent care centres may arrive on their own, or be transported there by ambulance.
Physicians must be ACLS certified and experience in Emergency or Urgent Care is preferred. Opportunities for work include: full time, part time and casual. All work is shift work and includes weekends, evenings and holidays. Remuneration is fee for service.
