South River, located in the Almaguin Highlands, has a population of 1,114 residents and is an access point to Algonquin Park. Residents of South River often find it challenging to access immediate medical care. There are only a few walk-in clinics in town and many have limited hours of operation. For instance, South River Machar Medical Centre at 140 Ottawa Ave is only open until 8pm on weekdays and is not open on weekends. If you require medical care after hours, even for a minor health issue, your only alternative is to go to North Bay General Hospital at Gormanville Rd. and wait for hours to see a doctor.
Virtual Health Clinic has addressed these difficulties by offering online health and wellness services to the residents of South River. Residents can access a variety of medical services online from any location, from 8am to 9pm, 365 days a year including statutory holidays. Using their phone or computer, patients can speak with an online medical provider almost instantly and get their health concern assessed, diagnosed and treated. Through our virtual clinic patients can also receive new prescriptions and refills, lab requisitions, specialist referrals, medical notes, and more.
