Interior Health says two new physicians have agreed to serve in Kaslo.
Dr. Fen Smit and Dr. Shelina Musaji, who have both provided locum coverage in Kaslo, will share a full-time position at Victorian Community Health Centre starting on Sept. 1.
They join Dr. Isabelle-Anne Fontaine in supporting primary care and emergency department services for Kaslo and area.
They replace another physician who left unexpectedly.
Health centre staff will begin booking appointments with the new physicians starting next week. To book an appointment with a physician, call 250-353-2291, extension 5.
In a prepared statement Interior Health said it recognized the contributions of the Kaslo and Area D health care select committee, Kaslo village council, and Area D regional director Aimee Watson for their help in supporting recruitment of the new doctors.
