Sun Country Health Region partners with community

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) and the community of Wawota and area are pleased to announce a solution has been found for the doctor shortage in Wawota and area.

As of May 15, doctors practicing in Arcola will travel to Wawota for two days each week to see patients and make rounds at the long term care centre in Wawota. The practice will begin with two doctors and eventually may expand to a rotation of four. They will work out of the current clinic located in the Wawota Health Centre on Monday and Friday.

“We thank the community for its patience and its leadership in planning together to put these arrangements in place,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO, Sun Country Health Region. The arrangements are a partnership between SCHR, Arcola Health Corporation and the Wawota Health Foundation.

“This is a permanent arrangement. We are pleased to have been able to successfully conclude these discussions quickly, with minimum disruption to the community,” says Mrs. Cugnet.

Doctors in Moosomin notified SCHR in February they would no longer travel to Wawota to provide primary health services. Since then, the nurse practitioner from Maryfield has been providing health care to long term care residents in Wawota.

“We thank Nurse Practitioner Nikki Ford and the Primary Health Care staff for their work in Wawota while the arrangements were being made,” says Mrs. Cugnet.
