Pediatrics move out of Sleeping Beauty, into new space
The Terrace Pediatric Clinic has temporarily moved from the Sleeping Beauty Pediatric Clinic to the third floor of the Park Avenue Medical Clinic.
As construction of a new, state-of-the-art facility progresses, the Sleeping Beauty Medical Clinic, located behind Mills Memorial Hospital, will need to be demolished to make way for the new hospital.
In the meantime, PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc, the contractor set to build the new hospital, will use Sleeping Beauty as a temporary on-site, office location.
The new permanent location for the Terrace Pediatric Clinic will not be on the hospital grounds. However, it will be adjacent to the property in a newly leased space in the Keith Avenue Mall. The Park Avenue clinic location is only temporary while the Keith Avenue space is being designed and renovated for the Terrace Pediatric Clinic.
The Terrace Pediatric Clinic provides primary care services for children, from birth to their seventeenth birthday. The Clinic offers comprehensive, up-to-date, quality care, for a variety of medical, developmental, and mental health problems. It is a consultative service based on a referral from a family physician.
Acute care services for children ¬– for example, emergency treatment and surgeries ¬– will continue to be offered at the hospital.
While there may be some changes to how patients access services throughout the construction of a new hospital, Northern Health is planning ahead and aims to keep all services as accessible as possible to patients during this time.
