Taylor Medical Clinic

TAYLOR, B.C. – The District of Taylor has found a solution to continue operations at the Taylor Medical Clinic.

After news surfaced the clinic could be facing closure, Mayor and Council took action.

“Earlier this year, citizens expressed their concerns when it was announced that the Taylor Medical Clinic may be facing closure. Mayor and Council heard the concerns and valued the high turnout and interest from the community to work towards this common goal of continuing health care services for residents. The public engagement and input led Council to make the continued operations at Taylor Medical Clinic a priority and they have been working hard to find new solutions for this important issue.”

An agreement has officially been reached between the North Peace Primary Care Clinic (NPPCC) and the District of Taylor coming into effect this September.

The announcement will see the NPPCC providing in-clinic doctors to the Taylor Medical Clinic 4 days per week, with the District of Taylor providing the facilities, staffing, and operational needs for the clinic over the one-year term.

“Our Council heard loud and clear from residents of Taylor and the region that medical services are a priority. On August 21st we will explain the new partnership between the North Peace Primary Care Clinic and ourselves,” said Mayor Rob Fraser. “I’d like to thank the staff and doctors for all their work on this partnership.”

Citizens are invited to attend a public meeting for more details on the agreement at 7:00 p.m. on August 21 in the District of Taylor Council Chambers.
