Clinic needs doctors
Physicians required in Lewisporte to make dream reality, says committee chair
After seven years of strenuous work, Lewisporte’s new clinic was ready for operation.
But it was still missing one vital element – doctors.
Concerned Citizens’ Committee chairman Walter Dawe said back in March the committee’s work to provide a first-class private community health care clinic in Lewisporte was coming to a close.
The spacious building has an on-site pharmacy and plenty of room for physicians, and is equipped with modern equipment. The building is also in close proximity to North Haven Manor and X-ray and emergency services.
To bring the committee’s tireless work full circle, a practicing physician was needed to open the clinic’s doors to the public, said Dawe.
“This clinic (has) all the right ingredients; all we need is the physicians to make this dream reality,” he said. “We have completed our (work), but now there is a challenge to help us secure doctors.”
