New Pediatric Clinic Opens at Nelson Mandela Park Public School

Tuesday, November 10, 2015
Categories: News Releases

Today, the Toronto District School Board and St. Michael’s Hospital officially opened the doors to a new pediatric clinic located within Nelson Mandela Park PS. The clinic, which is run in partnership by the TDSB Model Schools for Inner Cities Program and St. Michael’s Hospital, will provide healthcare to hundreds of children and their families.

This is the second TDSB pediatric clinic opened in partnership with St. Michael’s Hospital to serve the Regent Park community since 2011. A clinic is also located within Sprucecourt JPS.

In total, the TDSB has opened six pediatric clinics under the Model Schools for Inner Cities Pediatric Health Initiative. This initiative aims to improve access to healthcare for students and their families by offering in-school clinics in priority neighbourhoods across the city.


Quick Facts

  • Nelson Mandela Park PS students and their families will be able to access a wide variety of medical services through the clinic three days per week.
  • A family physician, two pediatricians and two developmental pediatricians will be available to consult with families and provide assessment, diagnosis, management and follow-up services.
  • In addition to the clinics at Nelson Mandela Park PS and Sprucecourt JPS, there are also pediatric clinics located at George Webster ES, North Albion CI, Willow Park JPS and Yorkwoods PS. Each clinic runs in partnership with a different healthcare provider.
  • Clinics at Parkdale JSPS and Chester Le JPS are also scheduled to open this school year.

 

“Thanks to St. Michael’s Hospital, we are excited to officially open this new clinic. This is another example of how the TDSB has developed strong and positive relationships with community agencies and is a proven leader in operating community hubs in our schools.”
- Robin Pilkey, Chair, TDSB

“Untreated health issues can prevent children from doing their best at school and at home. This initiative brings healthcare to students in a place they are familiar with and trust – their local school – and helps ensure that all students have a chance to thrive.”
- Donna Quan, Director of Education, TDSB

“Having access to these pediatric clinics in Toronto schools can be a game-changer for children with developmental challenges, who will now be able to get assessments up to two years before they otherwise would. This investment in health-care in young children will have a profound effect on their health and well-being for the rest of their lives.”
- Dr. Doug Sinclair, Executive Vice-President and Chief Medical Officer, St. Michael’s Hospital
