The Physicians of the Malone Medical Clinic have been providing medical care to the local community for 34 years. The Clinic is very busy and physicians can see 30-40 patients daily. We offer same day and walk-in appointments for the high number of patients who receive medical care at our clinic daily. There is a great support staff providing a very welcoming and happy working environment.
We are open from 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday using Telus EMR. We have an onsite laboratory providing a number of services and have a Pharmacy located in the building.
We have over 12,000 active patient files on our EMR system and are part of the local PCN with visiting specialists in cardiology and gastroenterology. These specialists provide endoscopy services at the local Hospital where there is also a CT scanner. Privileges for work at the local Hospital are available by application to Alberta Health Services.
The Clinic is situated 1.5 hours west of Edmonton and is approximately 3 hours from the Rockies.
We are currently recruiting 2 Physicians for full time employment and are also looking for shorter term locum Doctors with all positions available immediately. We are offering an 80/20 split for the first period of initial employment.
Further details may be obtained on our website or Facebook page.

Article below published, June 2019, by Alberta Health Services where Dr Mike Peyton was named 'Doc of the week':
“My wife (who I share my practice with) and I moved here (Drayton Valley) from Ireland 34 years ago and planned to stay for two years,” says Rural Family Physician, Dr. Michael Peyton. “I think people might be surprised that we’re still here, but we really enjoy it.”
Dr. Peyton cites the community connection as being the biggest reward for rural practice. The Peytons offer a family-friendly approach to their practice in Malone Clinic; they don’t wear white coats and they’re on a first-name basis with their patients.
“I’d highly recommend rural practice to emerging doctors,” says Dr. Peyton. “I find that we see a lot of variety and diversity in our patient care here and it’s offered us the opportunity to expand our skill set.”
Dr. Peyton and his wife are currently scaling back their involvement in the practice, not with a desire to stop working, but to gradually reduce the hours they put in.
When not at work, Dr. Peyton can be found golfing and watching hockey; specifically, cheering on the Edmonton Oilers, although he did mention he was happy to see the Calgary Flames doing so well this year."
