Our Vision

ARTUS Health Centre (ARTUS) is Western Canada’s largest independent rheumatology clinic. It is situated at 839 Broadway West and was established more than ten years ago as a leading care provider in the area of rheumatology. Its four medical directors are Royal College certified rheumatologists. The clinic also has access to physiotherapy, several rheumatology nurses and administrative staff. The clinic also provides infusion services through Pacific Arthritis Centre. All the medical directors at ARTUS are Professors at the University of British Columbia, Division of Rheumatology. As such the clinic is a vibrant centre of medical education and the largest centre of rheumatology training in the Province. In addition, the clinic has added the expertise of other doctors with specialized training in vasculitis and ultrasound.

At ARTUS, we specialize in diagnosing and treating patients with rheumatologic diseases.  The rheumatologists at ARTUS work closely with experts in physiotherapy and a wide complement of nursing staff to ensure that the best outcomes for our patients are realized.
