Bow Valley PCN opens satellite premises in Banff; supplementary site in Canmore
Additional locations in both Canmore and Banff are providing extra space for consultations and programs provided by members of Bow Valley PCN’s Inter-Professional team. New premises in Banff will enable the extension of the PCN’s Active Living Exercise Program into Banff, led by Kiley Torti, Active Living and Health Promotion Consultant.
Torti has an undergraduate degree in Arts, Kinesiology and Physical Education, is a Certified Exercise Physiologist and holds additional certifications in Personal Training, Pre & Post Natal Fitness and more. Torti’s previous experience with the Sally Borden, Town of Banff and Orion Health make her the ideal candidate to lead the implementation of PCN Active Living Exercise Program in Banff and to work with PCN colleagues towards the development of the PCN Chronic Pain Clinic.
Torti will also lend support and leadership to the Canmore Active Living Exercise Program and to the population health, health promotion, disease and injury prevention programming coordinated by the Bow Valley PCN. The Banff satellite office is located at:Bow Valley Primary Care Network, 2nd floor, #205 – 111 Banff Avenue, Banff, AB
In Canmore, the PCN has taken additional consultation space adjacent to Canmore Associate Medical Clinic to be used by Primary Care and Chronic Disease Management Nurses, Beulah Schneider and Sonia Boutin. Also members of the PCN’s Inter-Professional team, Boutin and Schneider, both RNs, help clients with complex health needs, developing action plans to ease the burden and delay the complications of chronic diseases. These include conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure and mental health or addiction issues.
Physician or health professional referrals are required for chronic disease management consultations or to join the Active Living Exercise Program. For more information, please ask at your family doctor’s clinic.
