Six Nations Health Services in collaboration with St. Joseph's Hospital of Hamilton, is pleased to announce the opening of an Internal Medicine Rapid Assessment clinic (IMRAC) on Six Nations territory.

The clinic will have the capacity to receive referrals from healthcare providers and community partners who serve Six Nations community members and those identifying as Indigenous in the area.

The clinic will offer rapid internal medicine assessments locally. This will eliminate the necessity for community members to travel elsewhere for services.

The clinic will see Indigenous patients with:

  • Chronic complex medical conditions
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • COPD
  • Not Yet Diagnosed (NYD) acute medical conditions that are stable enough to not needed the emergency room.
  • Common Internal Medicine conditions
  • Common internal medicine procedures- skin biopsies, thoracentesis, paracentesis, diagnostic lumbar puncture, joint injections/aspirations.

Patient care is delivered in a culturally safe manner, with the option for patients to incorporate traditional healing practices and allied health services into their care plan.

Referrals may be sent via fax to the Primary Care Management Team at Six Nations Health Services at 519-445-1917. A physician will then assess and prioritize these referrals according to the patient's level of urgency, ensuring that they are seen promptly. In cases where a clinic is scheduled on the same day, we will make an effort to triage and accommodate same-day patient referrals when necessary.
