(MONCTON) – Moncton’s Salvus Clinic has secured a permanent new home and is once again offering in-person appointments and services to patients and clients while continuing to provide ongoing service through its mobile health unit.

The clinic is now operational in its new, permanent location at 1116 Mountain Road, Suite 4, in Moncton, after relocating from its former location on Church Street in the city’s downtown last year.

Salvus has been serving the community since 2007 and cares for approximately 4,200 people.

In partnership with Horizon, the clinic provides an array of wrap-around primary care services to those without access to a primary care provider, as well as community members who may be experiencing challenges with substance use and mental illness.

Salvus’s multidisciplinary team – which includes three Nurse Practitioners – conducts routine health assessments, as well as counselling, supportive addiction management, screening and prevention of illness, immunizations, blood work, and referrals to specialists, among other critical services provided in collaboration with various partners.

“These last several months have been very challenging as we actively searched for a new space, but I am so pleased that we are able to once again provide a safe, accessible clinical space that is equipped to meet the needs of our patients and clients,” said Kathleen Buchanan, Horizon’s Primary Health Care Manager for the Moncton area.

“I’d like to sincerely thank our patients for their patience and understanding as we navigated through these challenges, as well as our incredible Salvus team for their commitment and dedication to those they serve – we know how great the need is for this clinic in our community, and I am pleased that we have finally secured our new home.”
