We are a private fee-for-service clinic comprised of Family Physicians and an Internal Medicine Specialist practicing in a team environment with skilled inter-professionals to endeavor to provide our patients with optimal care delivered in a focused and efficient manner.
Our Family Physician practices include a combination of office visits, in-patient care, low risk obstetrics, long-term care, ER coverage and walk-in services.
After over 50 years of practice at our downtown location, Western Medical Clinic Medical Corporation moved to its current location at 2425 Victoria Avenue, opening the doors on November 2, 2015. The new location has provided many opportunities to improve efficiencies with workflows and has allowed for continued expansion of the Physician group.
The Western Medical Clinic will be the independent, comprehensive primary care medical clinic of choice for our community’s healthcare needs.
The Western Medical Clinic provides comprehensive, accessible, quality-focused medical services in a caring, collaborative and efficient environment.

Family Medicine Residency Program
In 2012, Western Medical Clinic became affiliated with the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Family Practice to assist in developing the Brandon Satellite Program which is a satellite campus providing core and elective rotations for medical students, Family Medicine residents and more recently residents in other specialty training programs.
The aim of the Brandon site is to provide Family Medicine residency training and core Family Medicine clerkship training in a rural model, preparing graduates for practice in a rural setting.
Western Medical Clinic is extremely proud to support the Brandon satellite program through providing excellent training via our Physicians and is especially excited that we have been able to expand our Physician group with exceptional Physicians graduating from the Brandon Satellite Program.
As a patient, you may be seen by a Resident working with your Family Physician. He or she will be a qualified Physician in their first and second years of Family Practice Residency. Patients seen by a Resident will have their care discussed with their Family Physician at all times.
Western Medical Clinic registered and became a Home Clinic in 2017 and since then we have endeavored to ensure that our patients are aware of what a Home Clinic is and what identifying their Most Responsible Provider means. This is done through a process of patient enrolment with our Clinic.
A Home Clinic is a patient-centred primary care clinic, registered with Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living (MHSAL), that serves as a patient’s home base within the health-care system. Home Clinics are primary care clinics that provide patients with timely access to care, coordinate their health care within the health-care system and manage their health-care records. Having a home base helps support comprehensive and continuous care throughout a patients’ life.
A Home Clinic provides its patients comprehensive, continuous and coordinated care, thereby improving their patients’ health outcomes. Ensuring Manitobans have a Home Clinic, which serves as the home base for the majority of their primary care needs, is a key step towards achieving a longer term vision of a robust, equitable and accessible primary care system. Home Clinics are also considered vital to ensure long-term sustainability of the system.
