Dr. Slatnik starting private practice

Plans are falling into place at both the Greenwood and Rock Creek doctor's offices for continued service by physicians.

With the departure of Dr. Henry Ajaero from the Boundary at the end of last month the communities of Greenwood and Rock Creek have been putting plans in place for continued coverage in each of the clinics.

The City of Greenwood has announced that Dr. Michael Slatnik will be starting his private practice at the Greenwood Medical Clinic in December 2014.

“The City of Greenwood also wishes to send our sincere thanks to Dr. Mike Figurski for filling in from September to November so that residents of Greenwood have uninterrupted Health Care,” said a press release issued by the City.

Rock Creek Community Medical Association president Terry Keough told the Times that the Rock Creek Health Centre also has Dr. Figurski serving as a locum for five weeks—two half-days days per week: Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons in Rock Creek.

“Mayor Nipper Kettle of Greenwood proactively let me know ahead of time that he has somebody starting up in December as a GP in Greenwood.”

“We are working on a nurse practitioner option,” Keough continued. “We are meeting with the MLA next Saturday to tour the clinic and meeting with the nurse practitioner to see if we can’t some up with something from that angle.”

“I am talking to two doctors right now to get locum coverage for November for both clinics and then in December for Rock Creek only,” Keough said. “In December if we don’t have a permanent solution in place we will have locum coverage in Rock Creek.”
