New Family Medicine Clinic opens
November 21, 2011
The Family Medicine Clinic located in the Torbay Road Mall, St. John’s, had its official opening Nov. 8. This is the fourth clinic operated through the Discipline of Family Medicine, joining the network of clinics at Shea Heights, the Ross Family Medicine Clinic at the Miller Centre, and the Family Practice Clinic at the Health Sciences Centre.
 

Although the clinic has been open for several months, the official opening provided an opportunity for everyone to celebrate. Dean James Rourke spoke about the expansion of the Faculty of Medicine and the importance of the new clinic in being part of that expansion. Dr. Marshall Godwin, interim chair of the Discipline of Family Medicine, said the clinic provided another place to teach residents.

The doctors staffing the new clinic are Drs. Stephen Lee, Danielle O’Keefe, Christine Bassler and Rosann Seviour.
