A collaborative effort between Lac Ste. Anne County and five municipal partners has enabled the Onoway Medical Clinic in Onoway to continue operations as Onoway Regional Medical Clinic. Over the past year, the County has worked closely with The Town of Onoway, and with the Summer Villages of Ross Haven, West Cove, Val Quentin and Silver Sands to ensure this medical facility would continue to be able to provide quality health care services to families in and around the Onoway region.
"The Onoway clinic is an important part of the local community, and keeping it in place was a priority for Council," stated Town of Onoway Mayor Dale Krasnow. “I’m thankful for the considerable joint efforts of all municipal partners involved, without which this facility likely would not have continued to operate.”
In addition to Doctors Richard Kozakiewicz and Uys Winterbach with whom residents are likely familiar, Onoway Regional Medical Clinic is pleased to welcome Dr. Azeez Salami to its team of medical professionals. Dr. Salami is a seasoned and knowledgeable healthcare professional with great passion for primary healthcare and rural medicine.
"Increasingly, rural municipalities such as ours must collaborate, share, and find new and innovative ways to manage services and maintain healthy communities," shared Lac Ste. Anne County Mayor Bill Hegy. "The preservation of this vital facility is proof positive of such a collaboration."
With the recent addition of Dr. Salami, Onoway Regional Medical Clinic has become better equipped to assist both current and new clients in the region.
