Some of these families have been through extreme hardship that has physically uprooted them. For those who migrate to Calgary, entering into the Canadian health care system can be confusing and intimidating. Fortunately in Calgary’s NE, the Mosaic Primary Care Network’s (MPCN) Refugee Health Clinic (MRHC) helps support this transition into the Canadian health care system by providing health navigation and transition teams. The doctors, nurses, social workers, and mental health therapists support families with preventative care, health education, access to social services, interpreters, specialists, mental health, women’s health, and more. The MRHC currently provides care to over 3,500 patients. The clinic has supported more than 775 patients to find a family doctor and permanent medical home, personalized to meet their needs.
