We are taking patients at all of our 16 clinics locations around Alberta. Please visit our locations page to view the hours of the clinic closest to you.

Vulnerable Patient Hours

To reduce the risk that this virus poses to our most vulnerable patients CDC has set aside Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9:00am – 12:00pm to serve these patients, during which time NO patients with cough/cold or fever/flu-like symptoms can be allowed into our clinics. Asymptomatic (no fever, cough, sore throat, cold/flu symptoms) patients of all ages may be booked and served, and we will work to preferentially book our most vulnerable asymptomatic patients at these protected times as well.

Patients qualify for these hours if they are:
• Age > 65 years (regardless of any underlying conditions)
• Cardiovascular Disease
• Hypertension
• Diabetes
• Lung disease including moderate to severe asthma
• Immunocompromised
• Active malignancy
• Smoker
• Pregnant

We have implemented specific protocols and procedures to keep patients and staff as safe as possible, while attending to those with medical needs.

Canada Diagnostic Centres is in full compliance with the May 3, 2020 CMOH order 16-2020 pertaining to medical practices in Alberta, and is an active participant in ongoing discussions with the Alberta Society of Radiologists, Canadian Association of Radiologists, AHS, and CPSA regarding best practices.

At each of our clinics we have committed to the following actionable tasks, among others:
• All patients are screened per up-to-date Alberta recommendations for ILI/RTI symptoms; only the most urgent exams are performed on these patients, during designated hours.
• Vulnerable patients have separate hours from patients with any ILI/RTI symptoms.
• Wait-rooms and other areas have been modied to provide physical distancing.
• Clinics are operating at reduced capacity.
• Hand sanitizer is available at front reception and throughout the clinic.
• All patients arriving without a mask are provided one.
• All staff and physicians wear a mask at all times, and additional PPE as indicated.
• Touch surfaces throughout the clinics are regularly sanitized, and any extraneous items such as magazines and toys have been removed.

Standards and requirements are subject to change based on updates provided from government and health agencies.

The health and safety of our patients and sta is our top priority. We will continue to provide leadership and exceptional patient care.

For protection of staff, you as the patient, and your family member, we allow one companion in the room to see the ultrasound effective September 14, 2020. We will not be accommodating anyone additional, including children into the exam room for any part of the exam. This one companion will need to fill out the screening questionnaire as well, and this will be scanned to the patient file who is getting the OB exam.

We will also allow the use of a video conferencing application so that a family member can also see the baby at the end of your exam

Please install a video app (FaceTime, WhatsApp, Google Duo, etc.) of your choosing prior to your appointment – both you and your family member will need the app and should test a video call in advance. CDC has provided WiFi to help enable the video call in all clinics

We will not permit the capture of still photos or recorded video, nor can you video the sonographer performing your exam; please note, this is to ensure we are compliant with privacy policies. The sonographer is not able to assist with the video app so please be sure you know how your application works.

We will also print a photo of your baby for you to take home; you may purchase a CD of additional baby photos if you choose.

Please take note of the following information prior to arriving at your appointment:

  1. Due to COVID-19 we may require you to wait outside the clinic or in your vehicles in order to limit the number of people in our clinic at any given time. Our front desk staff will provide you with direction.
  2. You will be required to wear a mask. If you don’t bring your own mask we will provide you with one upon arrival.
  3. You will be required to sanitize your hands and remove any gloves you have on.
  4. You will be required to fill out a screening questionnaire before checking in for your appointment.
  5. If you bring a companion that is not needed for the exam they will be asked to wait outside to help with physical distancing.
