The Calgary Airport Authority is adding new health care services at Calgary International Airport (YYC) in welcoming PrimeCARE Health, a full-service medical clinic opening this week at the airport. The PrimeCARE Health clinic at YYC will offer walk-in and family doctor services for passengers and members of the airport community and those in surrounding neighbourhoods looking for a modern and convenient health care provider in the heart of northeast Calgary.

"This is the first airport location for PrimeCARE Health, and is an impressive new service offering for the airport community and our passengers," said Don Kolsun, Director, Commercial & Retail Development for The Calgary Airport Authority. "We are focused on offering a wide-range of services to all airport users and this latest addition showcases YYC's commitment to ensuring our passengers, partners and community have access to a variety of health and wellness options."

The clinic is the latest service offering available at Canada's third busiest airport, which currently boasts 135 shops and services that are available to more than 15.26 million passengers each year, and the more than 24,000 employees who work at the airport, 11,000 of which work directly in the terminal building at YYC.
