A new geriatric clinic has opened in Timmins.

The Timmins Family Health Team has opened a facility that will specialize in geriatric assessments, short term treatment and rehabilitation services. The Family Health Team says they were able to open the clinic with an annual investment of $335,000 from the North East Local Health Integration Network.

The clinic is open to all seniors in the Timmins and Cochrane region, including those who do not currently have a primary care physician. The clinic is located on Third Avenue in downtown Timmins.
