Arcola/Carlyle doctor to leave

Officials at Sun Country Health Region are planning consultations with municipal officials in the Arcola/Carlyle area during February and March to discuss the recruitment of more medical doctors.

They will work with the physicians and the community in the recruitment initiatives.

Dr. Pieter Botha, who has served residents in the area since December, 2004, has announced his intention to return to South Africa at the end of April, for family reasons.

His departure will leave the Arcola and Carlyle area, including the Arcola Health Centre and the 52-bed Moose Mountain Lodge, with one doctor. Dr. Botha also conducts a private practice from his office in Carlyle.

"This is really a loss for our communities," says Joanne Hollingshead, nurse manager of Arcola Health Centre. "Dr Botha has been a very valuable team member and our health care team is sad to see him leave."

The Human Resources Department of SCHR has engaged recruitment agencies to try to replace the doctor.

For more information, please call Sun Country Health Region Chief Executive Officer Cal Tant at 842-8718.
