For refugees arriving in Calgary, our specialized primary care clinic offers a range of health care services to support the unique resettlement needs of our patients. As we work to manage acute illnesses and stabilize chronic diseases, we engage patients in preventative health care and provide education to increase independent navigation of the health system.
Through ongoing collaborative partnerships, we continue to develop resources aimed at improving patient health outcomes and enhance community understanding of the resettlement process.
Mosaic’s Refugee Health Clinic in Marlborough Mall provides primary and multi-specialty care services such as:
- Women’s health: family planning, pregnancy and postpartum care, and ob/gyn
- Family health: tropical diseases, annual exams, preventative care, acute medical issues, health education, help accessing social services and interpreters, dental, and optometry
- Children’s health: full primary care, immunizations, nutrition services, and a pediatric specialty clinic
- Mental health: help with sleep disorders, depressed mood, anxiety, a psychiatrist specialty clinic, psychology and shared mental health sessions
- Transition services: after two years (or sooner), we connect patients to a family doctor in their community
Mosaic’s Refugee Health Services team has verified a number of health resources related to refugee health care and Canada’s interim federal health program.
