Tobermory | by Dan McLean  

The new Tobermory medical clinic will open to the public this week.

The new Tobermory medical clinic ill open to the public this week.

The six thousand square foot building will replace the 30 year old clinic that was considered too small to service the community.

The new one million dollar clinic -- which is twice the size of the old clinic -- will open the first Tuesday in March.

Ron Columbus -- the President of the Tobermory Health Auxiliary -- tells Bayshore Broadcasting News the old clinic is also falling into disrepair.

Columbus notes there is still much to be worked out about the services the new facility will provide -- but he hopes an emergency service will be returned to the community.

Columbus says they also hope the new clinic will attract new doctors and health care professionals to the area.

The new building has room for four doctors and a nurse practitioner as well as related physiotherapy and pharmacy services.

Columbus tells us there is also room for an expanded hyperbaric chamber to better serve the large diving community.

The old facility will be torn down and paved over for parking.

Columbus says their fundraising campaign was very successful and they have all the money in the bank to completely pay for the new facility.
