Manitoba Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen has officially announced the recruiting of six physicians to work in the Northern Health Region. Two will work in Flin Flon and four in Thompson.
The Health Region’s Communications Coordinator Twyla Storey says the two female physicians, Doctor George and Doctor Soltani actually started work at the Flin Flon Clinic in September.
Health Region CEO Helga Bryant says they are pleased to welcome these physicians to our region as having them join their team will increase their capacity for patients to experience improved access to medical services. She adds physician recruitment is an ongoing process that they continue to work on to meet the needs of the region’s residents. She encourages everyone to make these doctors feel welcome and become an integral part of our community.
