Here is the announcement that was sent to us:
" This year, the Rural Family Medicine residents of the University of Calgary were asked to nominate a clinic of the year for outstanding contribution to a family medicine rotation. This award goes to a family medicine clinic which, through all of their staff and programming, facilitates a welcoming and supportive learning environment for rural residents while modeling high quality, comprehensive patient care. Your clinic was nominated amongst a few excellent finalists and was then voted on by the entire resident body. The residents have chosen your clinic as the recipient of Clinic of the Year award. Congratulations!"


Also, one of our current medical residents, Dr. Veronique Ram was interviewed by the U of C about working as a rural resident. Here is the link to the article. She makes reference to her time in Three Hills.…/understanding-human-motivation-i…

Knee Hill Medical Clinic Grand Opening - July 8, 2016


Comments made by Dr. Luke Savage

Good afternoon!


Ladies and gentlemen, colleagues and honored guests.


My name is Dr Luke Savage. It is my privilege to bring greetings on behalf of the doctors and staff of Kneehill Medical Clinic.


This building has been a long time coming. It was an idea that some dared to dream 15, even 20 years ago. It took time for the dream to grow and mature. It had to be passed down to others and catch flame beyond the medical circle. And finally, like a good wine that’s put in the cellar for a time and then brought out, we are drinking the fruit of that dream from our past colleagues.


I congratulate the current county council for accepting the dream and developing it. For going out on a limb and having the vision and foresight to build a lasting legacy for our region. This clinic is now the foundation for excellent primary care in Kneehill County. It brings medical people together, improves collaboration and communication, and I am convinced the positive results will show in our patients lives in short order. Indeed, we are already seeing some of those goals realized.


It is not easy being a rural doctor. Many forces try to drag us to the city, as we’ve seen happen with some of our previous colleagues. Despite this, we have a solid, committed and young group of doctors and staff here at Kneehill Medical Clinic. This is due, in no small part, to the support of our community… from the site tours when we were first considering work here, to the Health Fundraising Galas, to the little thank you cards from patients and the waves of acknowledgement at the grocery store… all of those things makes this place home. Thank you especially to Bob Long, Al Campbell, and the Recruitment/Retention committee, which includes representatives from the smaller towns, for your long term support of the health professionals. They have recognized that a healthy vibrant community and county requires excellent health care and have worked tirelessly to this end.


One final thank you - to Sharon Peters, our clinic manager, and Dr Adina McBain, the physician lead, for the countless hours you have put into the transition and getting the new clinic up and running seamlessly.


It has been a privilege working on this project and seeing it develop, both from the people side of things and the building itself. It is not something we could have done alone, and I am grateful and feel blessed for the support around us.


Thank you again, now on with the celebration!


Mission… partnering with patients for optimal health, from conception to death.

Vision… every patient in the area we serve has easy access to a consistent and sustainable care team.
