You may be aware of the recent update on the Seton Family Healthcare website from Dr Anderton (owner and manager) posted Jan 7, 2021. In part it reads
"Seton Family Healthcare clinic is facing serious financial challenges that may impact your health care services.
After trying to work with RBC to come to an agreement, and resolve matters in a way that puts patients first, the bank is now forcing the clinic into bankruptcy proceedings."
I am sure this comes as shock to you, as it did to the staff and physicians. The earliest date the clinic may close is April 2021. After much deliberation, I have made the difficult decision to leave the clinic and will be relocating to Cranston Family and Walk-In Clinic in April 2021.
As patients, you have the choice to
1) Transfer to Cranston Family and Walk-In Clinic
2) Transfer your care to a physician of your choosing at a different location.
If you choose to transfer to Cranston Medical Clinic, I will arrange for your medical records to be transferred at no charge to you, if I receive notice of your intentions by March 15, 2021. To request your file transfer, please complete the form below. After March 15, 2021, I will not be able to transfer your files and your chart will be blank. You would then need to ask Seton Family Healthcare for a copy of the chart and there may be a charge associated with this.
Health and happiness, Dr Rachel Delacretaz
