Our client is looking for several Family Physicians for their new clinic (opening May 2016) which will be adjacent to a new pharmacy in Peachland BC. The Physicians will be able to tailor his or her practice to a particular niche if desired. Currently the need is for Family Physicians in the area, however some subspecialty such as low risk obstetrics or dermatology could be of interest. The new medical clinic will have the configuration of 4 examination rooms with 3 physician offices, or can be easily modified to have 5 examination rooms with 2 physician offices. A reception area, preparatory area, wheelchair accessible washrooms, and large waiting room complete the space. The pharmacy and medical clinic share a staff lunch room and meeting area, as well as a kitchen.
The clinic is located within the same shopping center as the Peachland grocery store, a handful of restaurants and retail shops, and is just a short walk down to the beach which boasts other retail stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. The medical clinic can run completely independently from the pharmacy, and carries very competitive lease rates. All renovations will be complete prior to Physician arrival, and rent-free periods can be negotiated. The first Physician for this clinic will need to be fully licensed within Canada, and once in place IMGs not on a full license will be able to apply.
The clinic require a 2 year minimum commitment and will include the following incentives:
– Living accommodations for up to 1 month
– Moving expenses within Canada up to a maximum of $10,000
– eMAR set up within the clinic and first month paid
– Hiring and payment of MOA and other nursing staff for the first month
– Clinic space rent for up to 3 months
Location: Peachland, BC is a district within the Okanagan region which has a population of nearly 6,000 people. It is located directly on the waterfront of Okanagan Lake, a stunning watersport-friendly lake which touches the cities and regions of Vernon, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland, Summerland, and Penticton. The clinic is off the main highway running through town. It is located in a busy plaza, next to a pharmacy and a grocery store. A restaurant, fast food chain, gas station, and liquor store also are in the area, as well as a hearing clinic. A bank is set to move in as well. Peachland BC has about 6000 people, and also services surrounding areas such as Summerland and West Kelowna. As many patients in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Summerland, and Penticton are without family physicians, it is highly likely that the practice will be very busy within a short period of time, as there has been expression of interest from patients in surrounding areas.
