Limoilou gets new free pediatric clinic

Quebec City (Quebec) 28 January 2015 – The borough of Limoilou may be losing its doctors but, it has inherited a new children’s clinic which offers services for the poor and underprivileged population in the area, of which there are many.

Doctor Marie-Camille Duquette from Montreal, a 35 year old pediatrician, saw the necessity to open such a clinic in an area where there are a large number of single parent families who are living on or under the poverty level. The centre is called, Le Centre de pédiatrie sociale de Québec, and is financed through donations from private companies and the general public, the well known Guignolée being one of the major contributors.

The new centre is integrated right next to the Patro Roc-Amadour, making it easily accessible to most of the local and surrounding residents.

Doctor Duquette hopes the centre will become a popular clinic for the parents and children who often can’t or don’t go to the doctor because of lack of money or time, or just out of simple depression and anxiety.

The centre, working with a budget of $300,000, counts on a nurse, a social worker and a therapeutic advisor who all come together to help Doctor Duquette supply the needs that are so much in demand in the borough and hopefully if all goes well, reach out to more families in the future.
