Doctors at Whitehorse General Hospital’s Women’s Clinic have announced they will leave that space and start a new maternity clinic, to be run out of the Klondyke Medical Clinic.

The new clinic will be called Crocus Maternity.

The purpose of the move “is to offer patients a central location and state of the art facilities,” according to a statement from doctors Deborah Lisoway, Chris Naylor, Amy Sawchuk and Justine Urness.

“This move is also reasonable for us, who already work from Klondyke Medical, to stay under one roof for both maternity care and family medicine.”

The change in location will come into effect Dec. 1. All existing patients will be transferred along with their doctors.

Maternity care is also available though the Sage Maternity Clinic.
