Red Deer’s newest medical clinic was scheduled to open in Clearview Market Square Wednesday.
Clearview Medical & Walk-In Clinic is located at No. 125, 47 Clearview Market Way.
Its medical staff currently consists of Drs. Josias Badenhorst and Stephan Kruger, who previously practised at Easthill Walk-In & Medical Clinic and MediCross Clinic respectively.
Badenhorst said a third physician, Dr. Johannes Conradie, who currently works in Kelowna, B.C., is scheduled to join in March.
“We actually have space for four doctors.”
Clearview Medical & Walk-In Clinic will offer family medicine, with Badenhorst also doing some maternity work. All three doctors will have hospital privileges, he said.
The clinic is accepting new patients.
Badenhorst thinks Clearview Market Square, where a variety of businesses are already operating and others are preparing to open, is a good location for a medical clinic. In addition to attracting a large volume of consumer traffic, it’s located in the midst of several new residential areas not currently served by doctors’ offices.
He added that Shopper Drug Mart, which is slated to open at Clearview Market Square in a few weeks, should complement the new clinic.
“I think it’s the place to be.”
Clearview Medical & Walk-In Clinic’s hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
