Big move for Centre
BY ANGELA BROWN
Staff Le Centre de Santé Communautaire de l'Estrie is close to completing work on its new location at 5 Main Street S. in Alexandria and has set Friday, September 2 as the date the new location will be open for business.
An official grand opening celebration will be held at a later date.
Spokesperson Audrey Bourgon-Touchette confirmed the centre will be closed August 30 and 31 and September 1 as the move from 280 Industrial Blvd. takes place.
In case of emergency, clients are to visit Hôpital Glengarry Memorial Hospital while the facility is closed.
Crews just completed work on the flooring at the new premises, the former Shoppers Drug Mart, and are installing new signage.
“There is still work to do but everything is going well,” said Ms. Bourgon-Touchette. “We’ll be ready for September 2.”
The new location will feature more examination rooms for physicians and nurse practitioners. To improve access and efficiency for both patients and staff everything will be located on one floor, an improvement over the two-storey Industrial Boulevard site.
Starting September 2, the new site will have the following regular business hours: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The phone number remains 613-525-5544.
ALMOST THERE: The entrance to the former Shoppers Drug Mart store in Alexandria is being rebuilt to make it wheelchair accessible as renovations near completion.
