Clinic needs doc­tors

Physi­cians re­quired in Lewisporte to make dream re­al­ity, says com­mit­tee chair

The Central Voice - - Year In Review -

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.”
