The Bridge Medical Clinic opened Jan 3, 2012, serving the communities between the Comox Valley and Campbell River. The physicians and staff at The Bridge Medical Clinic strive to provide the highest quality medical care as both a walk-in clinic and a family practice providing continuity of care. We link electronically with CVH and CRH radiology departments, as well as hospital and pharmacy records.

Covid-19 Pandemic - Clinic Protocols
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and our efforts to work with social distancing and to reduce the flow of patients through the office, the following protocols are ​currently in place.

    ALL appointments, whether booked OR  same-day, WILL be over the  PHONE.
    ​ It is up the physician to determine whether you are required to come into the
     office after your telephone appointment.

   • We have coordinated our in-office appointments to ensure that our patients are able to
    ​ maintain social 
distancing within the office, as well as allowing time for thorough cleaning
    ​ of offices and common-area 
surfaces throughout the day.
   • When patients attend an in-office visit, they Must wear a Medical Grade Mask and                     sanitize their hands after they come in the front door.​
   • If you are showing any signs of flu-like symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat,etc) do
     ​NOT enter the clinic; 
self-isolate, and call Island Health’s call centre at 1-844-901-8442
    ​ to assess whether or not a test is 
needed.

​​
   ​• If your family doctor is here please consider booking an Online Phone Appointment by               clicking the blue ‘Book Online’ button at the top of the page. 
Please call us at: 778-420-0200 and we will see how we can assist you. 

These protocols are in place for the safety of our patients and our staff.
Thankyou for your patience as we work to assist you with your medical needs at this time.

Phone Systems & Online Booking 

​Please note that because of our high call volume to the clinic we have had to adjust our phone systems. While we no longer have a voicemail option we are definitely still here to help you. We encourage you to get familiar with our Online Booking System which is quite straight forward. You can set up and coordinate your own appointments with your family doctor and if you have any trouble it may simply mean a one-time call to the clinic to change some settings. If you are trying to get through to us and are having difficulties please be patient and keep trying​.
​​Per the BC Ministry of Health mandate
​​MEDICAL GRADE MASKS are now ​MANDATORY
at ALL TIMES​
when inside The Bridge Medical Clinic

Dr Ham is Retiring!! 

​​​​​​​If you have ever had the privilege of meeting Dr Ham you know what a treasure he is. After 51 years of practicing medicine and being lucky enough to hold onto him for the last 9 years we are heartbroken to see him go but are excited to see what adventures come next for him! He always makes everyone feel heard so lets take a moment to have him hear how much he is appreciated and how he will be so desperately missed. Due to Covid-19 we are unable to throw him the party and celebration that he absolutely deserves so we have decided to create for him a memory that will live forever!
​​You are invited to join in on the fun and submit a video message, photo or email to be included in a personalized video montage for Dr Ham. Videos are preferred as we know how much Dr Ham loves to see all of your lovely faces!
Let's send him off with well wishes!
