The Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service (SLAACS) will see reduced hours during the holidays.
Due to physician unavailability, SLAACS will operate the following hours:
- December 25: Closed 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- December 28: Open 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Closed 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- December 30: Closed 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Other days are unaffected, and regular operations resume on Dec. 31.
These reduced hours are necessary as the service cannot operate without a physician onsite.
Patients arriving at the Sylvan Lake Community Health Centre to receive care at the Advanced Ambulatory Care Service during closures will be redirected to other available care options as appropriate to their needs. These options include returning when the service resumes, booking an appointment with a family doctor, or calling Health Link at 811 for medical information and advice.
Patients can also access medical care for urgent health concerns from facilities in nearby communities, including Innisfail, Rocky Mountain House and Red Deer. If you are experiencing an emergency call 9-1-1.
