Calian Health, in partnership with Military Family Services (MFS), is pleased to offer the Calian Military Family Doctor Network as part of its corporate citizenship efforts. The goals of the program are to improve access to quality health care for Canadian Armed Forces families by expediting the process of obtaining a physician and reducing the number of military spouses and children without a family physician.
Calian Military Family Doctor Network
The program, which is provided at no cost to families, Military Family Services or the Canadian Armed Forces, is now available in several communities where the need is great and there are a number of family physicians at Primacy clinics who are willing to extend their practices to accommodate military families. Calian staff have also started to extend their reach and appeal to family physicians who are not practicing at Primacy Clinics to make room in their practices for military family members.
More locations will be added in 2018, so be sure to check back regularly for a location near you.
