As part of our dedication to improve our patients access to services, we offer blood draws directly at our clinic. Our patients are able to conveniently schedule their blood work appointments with one of our Nursing staff. These appointments are typically on Monday mornings.
The Algoma NPLC’s dedicated well-qualified clinicians offer prenatal care for pregnant patients. Regular appointments with a Nurse Practitioner will be scheduled during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. After 20 weeks care will be transferred to OBGYN or to the Prenatal Care Clinic at Sault Area Hospital.
At each appointment the clinician will provide opportunity for patients to ask questions and address any concerns that may come up. A package of what to expect with helpful resources is provided to each patient at the time of their first prenatal visit. Links to additional pregnancy and parenting resources can be found on our Health Resources Page.
