UPDATE (MAY 4, 2020) — MEDICAL AND ALLIED HEALTH SERVICES

To our valued clients:
On April 30, the Alberta Government announced a phased relaunch strategy. Public health Order CMOH 16-2020 issued by Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Health, indicated that some health care professionals regulated under the Health Professions Act (HPA) are able to return to work.
This announcement initiated a robust and aggressive planning phase for the PIH leadership team. We are working diligently to ensure we comply with all requirements and guidelines established by Public Health as well the various regulatory bodies.
At this time, we are preparing to safely resume some services including:
– In-person essential medical services
* Note: Phone or virtual option will remain available
– In-person psychological services
* Note: Telepsychology option will remain available
– In-person dietitian services
* Note: Phone or virtual option will remain available
It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge that acupuncture, massage and manual osteopathic services are not presently included in Phase I of Alberta’s Relaunch Strategy. We understand that this decision was not made lightly by the CMOH and Alberta Government. PIH’s leadership team respects that decisions made by public health authorities are done so to ensure the safety of our clients, team members, and the community.
As we prepare to relaunch in-person services, we will be implementing some changes in the clinic including:
– Active and Passive Patient/Client Screening Procedures
– Hand Hygiene
– OHS Administrative Controls
– OHS Engineering Controls
– Cleaning and Disinfection Procedures and Products
– Physical Distancing in PIH
– Clinic Schedule and Clinic Flow
– Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
– Exclusion or Work Restriction During Staff or Provider Illness
As soon as all of this is in place you will be able to book online for in-person allied health services!
We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding and we hope we can see you again soon.
