Primary Care Physician – Ref. No. 21032
Seniors Health Centre

The Alex: Changing Health. Changing Lives. The Alex Community Health Centre is a not-for-profit organization that is changing how we look at health care in Calgary. Our health, housing and food programs support our most vulnerable neighbours, tackling tough health and social issues head-on. Using a multi-disciplinary team approach, we focus care on assessment, intervention and promotion of all aspects of health. We embrace a model of health care that is accessible, responsive and participatory. In addition to the Family Health Centre, we run a Seniors Health Centre, a Youth Centre, two Mobile Community Health Buses, one Dental Health Bus, four Housing First Programs, and a Community Food Centre.

What we do and why we do it:

Many seniors experience social isolation, barriers to transportation, and lack of support networks, resulting in a very vulnerable population. Our Seniors Health Centre increases the well-being and quality of life of seniors by providing quality, one-on-one, comprehensive care. This multidisciplinary team ensures the client receives timely services, appropriate referrals and the delivery of seamless care. Special attention focuses on reducing accessibility barriers and focusing more on a comprehensive wraparound approach to service delivery. A model of care that addresses the social, health, and financial needs with particular attention towards building wellness and quality of life.

Primary Care Physicians at The Alex Seniors Health Centre provide walk-in and appointment-based family practice in a non-judgmental, holistic, and opportunistic manner. Physicians are required to understand the social determinants of health as they pertain to this vulnerable and underserved population. Appointments are 30-60 minutes long as physicians are remunerated through an Alternate Relationship Plan with Alberta Health Services. This is a locum position from July 2021 – August 2021.

  • Full scope family practice in clients aged 60 and over
  • Special skill sets are encouraged and preferred (i.e. transgender medicine, procedures, opiate agonist therapy, emergency/urgent care, mental health, etc.)
  • Work effectively and collaboratively with nurses, mental health providers, and client resource specialists
  • Flexibility in regard to patient scheduling for same-day, walk-in appointments (there are frequent no shows and cancellations of scheduled appointments)
  • Respond to acute concerns as appropriate for a family physician in an outpatient setting (i.e. irregular behaviour, drug overdoses, active suicidality)
  • Feel comfortable in completing a Form 1, as required
  • Complete shadow billing for the ARP
  • Attend primary care provider meetings once every three months in the evening
  • Assist with data collection and entry as required

What you will bring:

  • Good standing with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta

  • A passion for advocating and building relationships with Seniors
  • Ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment
