Glenrose Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic Print Page
The Glenrose Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic is located at Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. The clinic is located on the second floor of the hospital. Patients must be referred to this clinic, usually from another physician. Some patients are initially seen at the Stollery Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic, and then transferred to the Glenrose Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic if they have increased health needs to see a multidisciplinary team (including: physical therapists, occupational therapists, social worker, registered dietician, psychology, orthotics, and support staff).
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact Alayna, the Booking Coordinator, at least 24 hours prior to your appointment: 780-735-8276
In order to timely access to care for all the children we serve in Western Canada, we must be able to reach you to confirm your attendance to this appointment prior to the appointment date. If this is not possible, this appointment will be cancelled and offered to another waiting family. You will either receive an appointment letter in the mail several weeks prior to your appointment, or receive a phone call to schedule the appointment. We leave voicemails whenever possible.
Please note that multiple cancellations, no-shows, and/or unconfirmed appointments may result in the care of your child being returned to your referring doctor.
On the Day of Your Appointment:
Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment, to give yourself time to find parking and the clinic. When you and your child arrive, please check in at the front desk in the GlenEast building (have your Alberta health card ready). You will then be given instructions on going up to the second floor to the Level 2 Clinic Area. Your child’s height, weight, and blood pressure will be checked. Your physician cannot guarantee your appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late.
- A list of all the medications and dosages your child is currently taking.
- A pair of shorts for your child to wear for the examination.
- Your child’s Alberta Health Care card and identification.
Appointments can take anywhere from ½ hour to 2 ½ hours, depending on how many team members your child is scheduled to see.
