Fracture Clinic  

whistler patrols

The Whistler Health Care Centre Fracture Clinic is administered by Vancouver Coastal Health. Dr. Brooks-Hill initiated the fracture clinic in 2007 when she realized the need for local urgent fracture care in the Sea to Sky Corridor. The fracture clinic provides urgent fracture assessment in Whistler. Our goal at Sea to Sky Orthopaedics is to develop a similar clinic in Squamish with dedicated operating room time at Squamish General Hospital for urgent orthopaedic surgery.

A physician referral is required by the British Columbia medical services plan to see an Orthopaedic Specialist. Any physician may fax a referral on behalf of a patient to our Sea to Sky Orthopaedics fax number: (604) 905-4073. A Sea to Sky Orthopaedics team member will contact referred patients directly with an appointment time.

If you have not received an appointment in a timely manner then please call:

  • Your referring doctor’s office, or
  • The Sea to Sky Orthopaedics office at (604) 905-4075 and leave a voicemail message if there is no answer.

Your appointment will be at the Whistler Health Care Centre, please check in at reception.

Whistler Health Care Centre
4380 Lorimer Road
Whistler, BC

Your care will be coordinated by the Orthopaedic Technician. Due to the complexity of care offered in the fracture clinic, we cannot accurately predict the length of your visit. Please bring a book or project to occupy your time in the waiting area. Please allow 2-6 hours of your time for your appointment.

» Please bring with you to each appointment:

  • Health card
  • Details of any other personal/private medical coverage plans
  • Sleeveless shirt for upper body examinations/Shorts for lower body examinations
  • Updated personal information ie. phone number, address, name of family doctor etc.
  • Films, CD copies of images or reports for any tests taken relating to your current physical condition (please note that the actual images are required in addition to the reports).
  • List of medications including vitamins, supplements etc. (if applicable)
  • Translator, if necessary. (medical terminology may be used and fluent English or French is required)

Currently, the Whistler Health Care Centre Fracture Clinic is the only local urgent orthopaedic clinic in the corridor. Sea to Sky Orthopaedics has and will continue to lobby for Vancouver Coastal Health to support a similar fracture clinic at Squamish General Hospital.
