Staff from the Fort St. John Medical Clinic and ABC Clinic will be working together with the new clinic to maintain quality care services for those from Fort St. John and the surrounding communities.
In a release Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman says, “I am very pleased with the establishment of this community clinic in Fort St. John. This will provide relief to the pressures being faced by the physicians in our growing community. We continue to work with Northern Health and the Ministry to ensure that our residents will have a long-term solution.”
Betty Morris of Northern Heath adds, “Local physicians and Northern Health are taking creative approaches to provide services for the community. The local physicians have gone above and beyond, and we are supporting this partnership to help them deliver the care that they do while we recruit to the vacant positions.”
It is the hope of Northern Health that offering a variety of practice opportunities including a multidisciplinary team environments will help in recruiting new physicians and recruits from other disciplines.
