Local residents have increased access to obstetric and gynecological care with the arrival of a new specialist physician now practising in the community.

Dr. Anneline Slabbert works out of Ross Medical at #300 4814 50 Street. She is accepting new patients and can be reached at 587-457-1984. With Dr. Slabbert’s arrival, there are now eight ob/gyn physicians practicing in Red Deer.

“The addition of Dr. Slabbert is great news for our growing city and surrounding areas,” says Adriana LaGrange, Minister of Health and MLA for Red Deer-North. “Our government continues to work with Alberta Health Services and our partners to recruit physicians to communities across the province, improving access to primary care services for all Albertans.”

“Red Deer is the third largest city in the best province in Canada.  Centrally located in the dynamic Calgary-Edmonton corridor, on the Red Deer River with beautiful parks and trails, close by lake and mountain recreational opportunities, Red Deer has many competitive advantages which make it an attractive place to live, work and raise a family,” says Jason Stephen, MLA for Red Deer-South. “It is good to see medical professionals coming to Red Deer to serve families and individuals in our wonderful community.”

Dr. Slabbert received her initial medical training in South Africa and pursued specialized training in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Alberta. She and her family spend time together camping and being active outdoors, making Red Deer a good match. Slabbert says,

“We are excited to have our family more involved in the community of Red Deer.”
