New Walk In Clinic coming to Huntsville

Councillors heard more on a proposed new Health Clinic at this week’s Huntsville Council meeting.

Staff requested that council approve a lease agreement with Dr. Melanie Mar and The Algonquin Family Health team for the purpose of providing a medical clinic at the Huntsville Public Library Annex.

The clinic would be for patients that do not have a primary care physician.  Council heard that an application for funding for this clinic has been sent to Ontario Health for ongoing and renovation costs.

However, the town is being asked for the use of the Annex space for 2 years minimum with an option to renew, and that the rent be waived, and the town would pay the utilities.

Staff also advised that the parking lot at this location is in need of repairs and asked council approve up to $60,000 through the Capital Replacement reserve.

All 3 recommendations were approved by council. It is hoped that the walk in clinic will be up and running by the beginning of December.
