Clinic Details — 100 Mile House District Hospital:
100 Mile House Hospital (OMH) is a 16-bed rural community hospital offering emergency, low-risk obstetrics, general medical, and outpatient ambulatory care services. The updated and recently renovated ER includes full 24/7 radiology and laboratory services. Access to CT scanning and ultrasound is an hour away. Other features include portable bed-side ultrasound, and a well-equipped trauma bay. Our local nursing and admin staff are indispensible in helping operate the hospital. Dedicated and highly skilled ER and generalist nurses work in a collaborative atmosphere.
Specialists are available in Williams Lake (1 hour drive). Currently this includes 3 General Surgeons, 3 OB/GYNs, a General Internist, a Pediatrician and a psychiatrist. They also offer CT during the day. Kamloops, a 2 hour drive, is the nearest tertiary hospital at which there are most specialties with the exception of interventional Cardiology. We also have access to specialist advice electronically within the hospital system.
We have capacity to welcome at least two Family Practitioners to our well established Exeter clinic in 100 Mile House as two of our colleagues retire! Our opportunity will suit family practitioners who are enthusiastic about rural practice and who are committed to a rural lifestyle.
Here you can work the full spectrum of Family Practice or you can develop a more specific practice with an emphasis on any number of particular interests, such as residential care, MH, pediatric, prenatal, or even GP oncology if you are willing to do the additional training. We require only that you also be willing to provide 4-6 ER shifts per month in our 24/7 ER.
Our clinic has capacity to grow with our experienced office staff and with existing space for up to 10 office/examination rooms in our main clinic and 2 in our off site walk-in clinic. We are also proud to be one of the few communities to be granted the status of "proof of concept" as we move forward with Patient Medical Home Network development. Teaching opportunities are a rewarding option for those with interest.
Our residents enjoy the variety of experiences they have here, and they enjoy the benefit that is gained from working with GPs who have enhanced training in various sub specialty interests. Nearby Williams Lake provides additional support in key basic specialties of Ob/Gyn, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and General Surgery. Within our clinic we have regular dietician consults and visiting pediatrician clinics, and we are working to hire a Nurse Practitioner.
Our team is collegial and is a mix of young, experienced and senior physicians so that we can ensure you receive a strong orientation to the practice and the community. You have only to talk to any of our younger physicians or colleagues to learn how rewarding a practice can be in 100 Mile House, and to learn how wonderful this area can be to raise a family!
For those interested, Leadership Development Opportunities are available with Interior Health’s NAVIG8 Program. The NAVIG8 Emerging Physician Leaders Program is a comprehensive leadership development program designed specifically for physicians to address the practical leadership knowledge, behaviours and skills that high potential, emerging medical leaders require to step into leadership roles early in their careers.
