June 16, 2022

In response to Huron Perth experiencing a reduction in COVID-19 transmission rates, the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance’s (HPHA) COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre (CAC), located at the Stratford Rotary Complex, is reducing its hours of operation.

Effective Monday, June 20, 2022 the centre will operate Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. COVID-19 testing appointments will be available from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. and physician assessment appointments from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Do you have symptoms of COVID-19?
You should consider making an appointment for a clinical assessment if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and any of the following apply to you:
  • You are at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 and need to get tested and assessed for COVID-19 treatment
  • You have been directed to visit a COVID-19 clinical assessment centre by your primary care provider
  • You feel that you cannot safely monitor your COVID-19 symptoms at home and need to be seen by a health care provider
Are your children experiencing respiratory symptoms?
Our CAC physicians are able to complete a respiratory assessment even if your child does not qualify for COVID-19 testing. Our local primary care and Emergency Department providers support a CAC physician respiratory assessment as a convenient and effective option for parents of children experiencing cold and virus symptoms seeking a doctor’s appointment.
