Owners of the building at 34 Main Street West in Beeton were excited to welcome guests into their newly renovated facility on Saturday, March 3 – the Bee Town Medical Centre (BTMC).
Now a medical centre and pharmacy, the building was once home to this newspaper, and throughout the years, many other businesses as well, including a sporting goods manufacturing plant, a hardware store and even an opera hall.
Today, the main floor of the building is unrecognizable. On the left side you'll find bright white walls, new flooring, three patient rooms, a fully accessible washroom, and hallways that didn't exist before. On the right, a new medical pharmacy with the same fresh look.
Later this month, business/building owners Yuri Tabulov, Pharmacist, and his son, George Tabulov, General Manager, are hoping to announce a new family Medical Doctor, and a second doctor soon after.
Once an MD has been confirmed, a cardiologist, who is unnamed at this time, will offer services through the medical centre one day a week. The Times has learned that the specialist currently practices at Southlake Health Care Centre in Newmarket, and has one other private practice.
The clinic also has dedicated space for diagnostic imaging – ultra sound, and later x-ray, when Phase II of the facility is opened in the back of the main floor (currently occupied).
Into the future, the goal for Yuri and George is to expand the medical centre into the upper floors, but to address current accessibility issues an elevator will be required.
An on-site phlebotomist will also be on hand, with results through LifeLabs in Newmarket. The BTMC will be connected electronically with the lab, to bring results back to the clinic without requiring patient travel.
Technology also plays a role in how the medical centre has been outfitted, and in patient charting, as ABLEMed, an electronic transferable patient monitoring system, will allow doctors to see a complete picture of their patients' health – from hospital visits to vascular findings, to x-ray and ultra sound. The program also supports automatic referrals to specialists.
Originally from Moose Factory, George Tabulov says he chose Beeton for his medical centre because of the local need, and the proximity to the GTA.
Down the road, George says he hopes to use his background as a biotechnologist to conduct clinical research in Beeton, thereby attracting major pharmaceutical companies to the area, and getting new drug approvals faster.
