Clinic Closure Jan 1, 2023
Dear patients and families,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Markham Kids Clinic as of January 1st 2023. It has been our privilege to take care of all the children and families we have come into contact with over the last 5 years. Having opened the doors in November of 2017, it has flown by. We are grateful.
We understand there will be questions. Please see the FAQs below or contact us if you have more questions. We look forward to trying to help answer them.
Why are you closing?
The pandemic proved to be a very difficult time for us to keep the clinic financially viable. In addition, we have not been able to bring on new pediatricians, specialists and other interprofessional health care team members to help grow our capacity and keep up with the demands of the community. This is the trend across the GTA.
As a service to the community and because we felt responsible to all of you, we tried our best during this period and beyond. Regrettably, we are unable to continue on to do so. This has been a difficult decision we have been grappling with for quite some time now.
What does this mean for us?
What this will mean is that as of the New Year, each family will need to find a new family doctor or pediatrician to continue on their child’s primary care. For children with special needs or conditions we will try our best to help find a solution.
To the right are some family doctors and pediatricians that are likely accepting new patients. After calling them, if you would like your chart transferred there we will be able to help with that. As per our obligations, medical records are still kept securely with us after clinic closure. We assure you the utmost confidentiality and privacy.
We would like to set expectations that there are few pediatricians in the region taking children on for primary care, so finding a family doctor for your healthy child will most likely be the most realistic option.
Will you still be available for consultation?
With the exception of Dr. Sharma, each of the other paediatricians will still be available for consultation at their other practice sites by REFERRAL only. Please ask your paediatrician for details on that location.
