Alberta Rural Health Week
May 25 – 29, 2020
One of the keys to a vibrant community is a strong health care network. We are fortunate in the Tofield, Ryley, and Beaver County region to have the wonderful Tofield Health Care Centre, medical clinic, pharmacies, and top-notch ambulance service. These are facilities are successful because of the dedication shown by their health care professionals and support staff.
We would also like to acknowledge the members of the Tofield and Ryley stations with Beaver Emergency Services, who play an active role in medical first response.
In addition, the Primary Care Network (PCN) and the Rural Health Professions Action Plan (RhPAP) play a key role in enhancing health services here.
In honour of Alberta Rural Health Week and on behalf of the Tofield and Area Health Services Foundation, we salute you and thank all of you for your contributions in striving to keep our area healthy.

Welcome our New doctor
Tofield and area now has a third Doctor, as Dr. Racha Sabha (pictured centre below) opened her practice at the Tofield Medical Clinic in March.
“On behalf of the Tofield and Area Health Foundation, I would like to welcome Dr. Racha Sabha to our community. Your arrival has been long awaited by our family, citizens, and existing doctors. We wish you much success in your new practice”.

“On behalf of the Community Attraction and Retention Committee (CARC) I would like to welcome Dr. Racha Sabha to Tofield while she services Tofield, Ryley, and Beaver County Residents. We have long been waiting for a third physician to fill the needs of all our communities and to compliment the two physicians already in practice at the Tofield Medical Clinic. When you see Dr. Sabha, Dr. Jallad, or Dr. Abuzehar out and about, please remember to give them a big hello and thank them for wanting to make Tofield and area their new home. We look forward to seeing them for many years to come."
