Every year The Rural Physician Action Plan (RPAP) presents the Alberta Rural Community Physician Attraction and Retention Award to a rural Alberta Community that has shown commitment towards attracting and retaining physicians and improving the quality of rural health care.
This year, the Bonnyville Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee was honoured with the award and Lindisfarne’s video production team had the opportunity to create a video to celebrate the community.
Committee Members and newly arrived physicians took time to speak to us about the various creative initiatives that had been set in place in order to attract new physicians. Since the formation of the committee in 2014, Bonnyville has gone from a shortage of 5 physicians to recruiting 6 new doctors to the area!
Great job Bonnyville!
Mayor Gene Sobolewski
