Seasons Medical centre is located in the newly developed Seasons of Tuxedo. Only steps away from Seasons Outlet Mall, Senior living homes, many newly built apartment buildings, and several other businesses.
The clinic will be vital to the whole Seasons of Tuxedo neighborhood with its modern design, new equipment, and furniture. We are aiming at creating solid partnerships with many businesses which will create a friendly environment for everyone.
Seasons Medical Centre has a total of 20 exam rooms including a minor surgical room. Our clinic includes a spacious reception and waiting area, 2 public washrooms, a large staff room which will come with amenities, and a lot of room for public parking.
Our physicians will be using a modern cloud base EMR (training and on-going support will be covered). Billing, lab, prescriptions, and paperless referrals are all done via EMR at no extra cost.
Our goal is to create a very successful and comfortable work environment. Each doctor will have the freedom of creating their own schedule, subspecialties, and interests. Our incentive for the first three family physicians who come on board with us will have an attractive and expensed overhead.
Note that we also offer office renting for specialists and other health related professions.
