In November of 2014, Martensville Collective Health and Wellness opened its doors up to the community and since then, has been a staple within the city providing care to local residents, as well as those from surrounding areas.
Recently Dr. Allison Adamus was awarded the ‘My Family Doc Rocks’ award from the Saskatchewan College of Family Physicians (SCFP) after a patient submitted a nomination. On the SCFP website, the state that a family doctor-patient relationship is often times the most trusted in health care. “It is a relationship that both the doctor and patient have been nurturing since a patient’s first visit and often the patients first encounter with the health care system. We know patients count on family doctors and value these relationships.” They also add that a patient’s family physician often acts as the central hub for managing your health and provide a higher level of continuity of care.
Since opening her practice in Martensville, Dr. Adamus has spent much time advocating for increased health services in the community and has brought additional doctors and health care options to the city.
Recently, Dr. Adamus took on the role of Area Division Lead with the Saskatchewan Health Authority for the Saskatoon North Network. “She has been getting to know more about the services and physicians that make up this network. Although this work has primarily been focused on pandemic planning to date, she is excited to start diving deeper into the network, working with and further developing the health care team to serve her area,” the SCFP website states.
Congratulations to Dr. Adamus on receiving this award and thank you for your dedication to this community.
