St. Michael’s Hospital launched Syrian refugee clinic today, becoming the largest clinic in the GTA to open its doors to the newcomers. The hospital plans to hold clinics dedicated to Syrian refugees once a month, but it’s ready to increase that number as each clinic is expected to see up to 30 patients per week and each visit could last about 45 minutes. “We’re ready to go five days a week if we need,” said Dr. Philip Berger, a family doctor with St. Michael’s Hospital who is assigned to the clinic.
