WINTER IS HERE!

…which usually means busier times at medical clinics, and longer waits to see your doctor, sometimes weeks and even months!

We want you to know our team works very hard to see every person that walks through our doors everyday, whether you are a Drop-in Patient, a Visitor to the area, newly relocated, or unable to get into see your own GP, or when you really don’t need to go to the ER.

We believe in Timely and Effective Medical Services for All. 

In B.C., we have the ability to provide exactly that!

At Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic, we strive to be open 7 Days per Week, and on most Stat Holidays.

This does, however require consistent and reliable providers, often difficult to recruit and retain.This is why we are asking for each and everyone who believes that Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic is a vital part of the the Primary Care Network in the Kootenay Boundary Region to get involved.

We are Asking You to Please Spread the Word!

We have a fantastic but small team, but desperately need more providers! We have patients coming to us for ongoing medical care, who need more, and specialized providers! We have a highly efficient Electronic Medical System and super efficient support staff, but we all need more support in the form of more providers!

Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic is a small and locally owned business with limited resources, so we are relying on Word of Mouth to help us recruit 3 more providers.When the new Provincial Funding Model for Primary Care Networks comes to fruition in 2019, it will include not just physicians, but nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, mental health professionals, plus qualified support staff. This funding is made possible by you, through your tax payer’s contributions to British Columbia’s Medical Services Plan.

Contact your local and ministry representatives to find out more.
