Our team of health professionals can provide expert assessment and treatment for patients with acute injuries such as sprains, cuts, bruises, and fractures that do not require hospitalization. The Minor Injury Clinic is set up to assess and treat most non-life threatening bone, joint and soft tissue injuries.
If your problem is chronic in nature (long-lasting or recurrent), we can help you by scheduling an appointment with one of our Sport Medicine physicians.

The Pan Am Minor Injury Clinic is a place where you, family members and friends will receive specialized musculoskeletal care.
When you arrive in MIC your condition will be assessed by a nurse. A clerk will then ask you for demographic information and will provide you with a same-day appointment. Patients with the most urgent issues will be given priority appointment times. You are welcome to leave the clinic and return for your appointment or you may choose to stay. Either way, if your condition worsens, we ask that you let us know.
When you return for your appointment, please check in at the front desk. A nurse will further assess your condition and may refer you for an x-ray.
The doctor will examine/review your condition and recommend appropriate treatment and care. If the doctor determines that you require follow-up care, you will be given an appointment to see the doctor or an athletic therapist.
Once the same day appointment capacity has been reached, the Minor Injury Clinic will be closed to non-urgent walk-in patients earlier than posted hours. If your problem is chronic in nature (long-lasting or recurrent), then we can help you by scheduling a regular appointment with one of our Sports Medicine physicians. Other alternatives include seeing your family doctor, a walk-in clinic, or local quick care clinics.back to top ↑
Not all patients need to be followed-up or require follow-up care by the Pan Am Clinic. Many times, patients are best followed-up by the family physician. If you do not have a family physician, we can help organize appropriate follow-up.back to top ↑
How quickly you are seen depends on the number of people who arrived before you and the seriousness of your condition.back to top ↑
If the nurse orders an x-ray and you leave before the doctor sees you, you should not assume we will be able to contact you with abnormal x-ray or test results.back to top ↑
For problems not related to bone, joints and soft tissue, we recommend you call or visit your family doctor first. If your family doctor is not available, you may wish to go to the Urgent Care Centre at the Misericordia Health Centre.back to top ↑
Anyone with a life-threatening condition should dial 911 or proceed to a hospital emergency room.back to top ↑
If you are not sure whether you should go to the Pan Am Minor Injury Clinic, Urgent Care Centre at the Misericordia Health Centre, or to an Emergency Room, call the 24-hour Health Links-Info Santé telephone helpline at 204.788.8200 or 1.888.315.9257.back to top ↑
