About Ultima Medicentre (1983)
This is a full-service facility located in the heart of Vancouver’s core, and a block away from the hotel community, and Canada’s prestigious Trade and Convention Centre. We register temporary and long term patients. We refer, and arrange hospitalization when necessary. All doctors (most of whom have university teaching appointments) are affiliated with either St. Paul's and/or Vancouver General Hospitals, both world class, academic and research medical centres of excellence, located close to the urban core. You will from time to time have a family practice resident see you under supervision. They are graduated doctors, and are qualified to diagnose and treat.
Tourists and temporary visitors such as students from English language schools are important to us . We have some multiple language capabilities, but also pay special attention to their needs.
With an interest in wellness, we are associated with Ultima Executive Health Services(www.ultimamedical.com) , Bentall Physiotherapy, and the Bentall Centre Athletic Club (www.bentallcentreathleticclub.com).
We primarily see patients on a walk-in basis, though for select cases, appointments are made. General physicals, and small surgical procedures are also available by appointment.
General medical exams are often not covered by your provincial health plan, unless for management of chronic illness, or following the elderly. A new patient may qualify for one full examination however, as a baseline. Thereafter please speak to your physician about the frequency of exams. This does not apply to women for examinations related to Pap tests.
