SCHR arranging medical services for Wawota

Sun Country Health Region is exploring its options for providing continued medical services to the residents of Wawota and area.

“The Region has received notice from doctors in Moosomin that after more than 15 years of committed service they will no longer be able to provide medical care to the residents of Wawota and area,” says Marga Cugnet, President and CEO, Sun Country Health Region.

The services for the community and to long term care residents at Wawota Health Centre will be withdrawn as of March 20, 2015.

Currently, the Moosomin doctors travel to Wawota two days each week.

“We received this information with regret and we thank them for their dedicated service to this community,” says Mrs. Cugnet. The Moosomin group is short of doctors and has been for some time.  

The Moosomin group will continue to provide service to Maryfield and area from the Maryfield Health Centre.

Mrs. Cugnet said one of the options the Region is examining is to ask our Nurse Practitioner in Maryfield to provide clinical care one day each week in Wawota. “We are also holding preliminary discussions with doctors in the surrounding communities,” she said.

“Our intention is to sustain a similar level of service for the people of Wawota and area,” she said.  “We will inform the community as soon as we have a solution.”
