The ACFP would like to formally congratulate the winner of the 2021 Patient’s Medical Home – Outstanding Family Practice award – the East Calgary Family Care Clinic (ECFCC).
This award recognizes a clinic that exemplifies the vision of a Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) by going above and beyond to focus on the needs of patients and their communities. In June, the ACFP travelled to Calgary to deliver this award in person to the dream team behind this amazing clinic.
The ECFCC is a clinic with Alberta Health Services (AHS) that takes care of the whole patient. This includes addressing medical and psychosocial issues ranging from mental health to immigration and refugee concerns. Patients are treated by the full medical team of interdisciplinary professionals made up of family physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians, psychologists, social workers, an occupational therapist, a physiotherapist, and a clinical pharmacist.
The ECFCC team prides themselves on exceptional teamwork, fostering a supportive work environment, and providing outstanding care to patients. They are always happy to help one another through the complex demands of providing care.
Congratulations to everyone at the ECFCC!
