Siksika Health Services will be temporarily suspending X-ray services at the Siksika Health and Wellness Centre (SHWC).
The closure is due to a staffing change, as our long-term Combined Laboratory and X-Ray Technologist (CLXT) has retired.
We look forward to the eventual resumption of our X-ray services as soon as possible. In the meantime, some of the nearest options for X-ray services include:
Strathmore Hospital – X-rays are available by walk in. No need to make an appointment. Services are available from 8:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. Doctors will need to use AHS requisitions for Connect Care numbers.
Frontier Diagnostics – Appointments Only. Located at 231 2nd Ave Strathmore, AB. Please call 403-983-9998 for an appointment.
Bassano Hospital – X-rays are not available until after December 1. Hours are 8:30-12:00pm and 1:00-3:00pm Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. Doctors will need to use AHS requisitions for Connect Care numbers.
Laboratory and monthly ultrasound services will continue to be available ongoing at the Siksika Health & Wellness Centre, by appointment. Nation members can schedule lab and ultrasound appointments by calling 403-734-5667.
From the lab assistants that take samples to the laboratory technologists that analyze them, many of the workers who staff Canada’s labs are in short supply. During this time, we will continue our diligent search for a technologist. For those who might be interested in working with Siksika Health Services’ diagnostic services, most specifically those qualified in the area of X-ray technologies, we invite you to contact our HR department at email@example.com.
