Our Urgent Care services are open 7 days a week, 362 days a year, Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., weekends and holidays 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
One of the largest clinics in Saskatchewan, Lakeside has 21 offices, 41 exam rooms, 2 procedure rooms, along with a spacious, comfortable waiting room with ample parking for staff and patients. In 2020, we will relocate to a new purpose-built medical center with pharmacy, medical imaging, physiotherapy, bracing/orthotists, dentistry and optometry on the premises. Our new location is minutes away from lab services and is adjacent to College Drive, a few minutes from Royal University Hospital and the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. Our family medicine facility will boast 32 physician offices, 68 exam rooms, 2 large procedure rooms, spacious staff room and conference rooms which are multimedia equipped. Our Urgent Care facility will be separate but attached, with 10 exam rooms, two treatment rooms, a physician lounge and dictation area with 6 workstations. The new office will have electrified free parking and a separate and private physician entrance. We will be located on Muskeg Lake Urban Reserve in Sutherland.
Lakeside Medical Clinic maintains a reputation as a destination for patients, staff, and physicians, and boasts a large group of 24 physicians, who support one another with a wide range of professional interests and several decades of experience.
Lakeside Medical Clinic is professionally managed. The management team leads and directs 30+ well trained support staff whose goal it is to assist their physicians to work efficiently, effectively and on-time maximizing the quality and quantity of patient care, as well as physician earning potential. Lakeside is equipped with modern furnishings, medical equipment, and state of the art managed IT services that included Accuro EMR with home access for all physicians.
Our large physician group also provides coverage for our clients while we are away for vacation, CME, or illness via our 7 days a week Urgent Care facility. This allows our physicians greater freedom to plan their time away from the clinic much more freely, without the need to hire locums during vacations. All our physicians participate in the Urgent Care clinic, allowing the opportunity for greater variety, as well as the opportunity to treat fractures, lacerations, and medical emergencies of a minor nature. Our Family Medicine clinic is equipped for physicians to provide additional services including Insurance Medicals, Aviation and RCMP medicals, Sports Medicine, “No-Scalpel” Vasectomies, Infant Circumcisions, IUD insertions and more.
