Lab appointments required starting July 1, 2022

As of July 1, 2022 any Stoney Health Service’s client who requires lab work must book an appointment with Stoney Health Service’s reception, either in-person or by calling 403-881-3920. This includes clients who require any lab work following a same-day visit with a physician or other healthcare professional at the Stoney Health Centre. Stoney Health will assist clients in the order of their appointment booking time. Drop-ins, without appointments, are no longer accepted.

Following an appointment, clients will be escorted back to the main reception area and directed to reception staff to schedule a lab appointment. Same day appointments may be available and will be encouraged.

Falls Prevention Awareness in November

November is Falls Prevention Month. Throughout the month, tips, advice and support will be offered to Nation members on how to prevent falls at home and in the community.

The Stoney Health Falls Prevention team supports older adults and Elders to stay active and reduce their risks of falls. Our staff works with the community to improve strength and balance, and develop ways to stay safe at home and in the community. 

Due to COVID, the Elder Wellness Group has been paused. Once safe gathering is once again available, the Elder Wellness Group will provide Elders with the opportunity to gather together, exercise, enjoy a meal, learn about Falls Prevention and participate in fun activities.
