Sale pending for Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic

The walk-in clinic in the Chahko Mika Mall may have new owners by April 1.

The walk-in clinic in the Chahko Mika Mall may have new owners by April 1.

According to a statement on its website, a sale of the Kootenay Lake Medical Clinic is pending, and longtime owner Dr. John Dale will stay on as “medical consultant adviser.”

“Additional doctors are being actively sought to replace the two who have left over the past six months,” says the statement.

The clinic is again open seven days a week after closing on Sundays for a time due to a staffing shortage.

The clinic lost one of its partners, Dr. Robert Taylor, to WorkSafeBC.

Although a foreign trained doctor was prepared to join the clinic, Interior Health vetoed the move, saying such physicians must work in supervised settings, such as full-service family practices with hospital privileges.

The health authority said the clinic doesn’t meet that criteria.
