Regional Physician Recruitment

A message from the Coordinator for Smoky River Regional Physician Recruitment and Retention:

As the Physician recruitment Coordinator for the Smoky River area I am excited to announce a positive update about the physician situation in the Smoky River area. We have two new physicians that are in the process of completing their three-month assessment. Dr. Ezike completes his assessment in the middle of February and will be practicing out of the McLennan Associate Medical clinic. Dr. Hussien completes his assessment toward the end of February and will practice out of the Falher Medical clinic. Both Physicians will be taking new patients and look forward to helping you and your family with your medical needs. Appointment bookings should start sometime in March (please check at either clinic if you require an appointment). The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta needs time to process the paperwork before making appointments.

Both Physicians bring a beautiful family looking forward to the move and making the Smoky River area their home. As Coordinator I am also eager to help them settle into our region.I encourage the residents of the Smoky River area to give a warm welcome if you see the physicians and families in the area. The two new physicians should help with the emergency room closures that we have been experiencing at the McLennan hospital.

Kind Regards,
SRRPR&R Coordinator
