Public health programs relocating to Melcor Centre

July 8, 2024

LETHBRIDGE – Public health teams and programs now working at the Lethbridge Train Station will permanently relocate to Melcor Centre on July 22, pending completion of renovations.

This relocation will consolidate all public health programs in one location, providing clients with convenient access to multidisciplinary healthcare teams and resources.

The last day for appointments at the Lethbridge Train Station will be July 19. Public health programs and services are expected to operate at full capacity at Melcor Centre on July 25.

During this transition, public health appointments will be limited. Impacted clients with an appointment booked between July 19 and 24 will be contacted directly by public health staff.

Following the move, patients will be automatically booked for appointments at Melcor Centre.

Community members can book appointments 90 days in advance. Those with appointments scheduled for August or later should attend Melcor Centre for their appointment rather than the Lethbridge Train Station. Community members are asked to follow the instructions provided in reminder notifications for appointments.

Individuals can book appointments by calling the clinic, 403-388-6666, or by calling 811.

Public health programs include pre- and post-natal supports, immunization, population and public health program, preschool/school oral health services, public health nursing, sexual and reproductive health, environmental public health, comprehensive school health and public health nutrition.

Melcor Centre is located at 200 4 Ave. S. Clients attending appointments at Melcor Centre can park for free in the parkade outside of The Bay’s west entrance. Please be sure to check your vehicle in at one of the parking meters located at the building entrance doors.

Anyone with questions about access to public health services and programming is encouraged to call 403-388-6666.
