Interior Health is pleased to announce that nurse practitioner Celia Evanson will be available to support Greenwood residents with primary health care needs each Monday at the Greenwood Medical Clinic beginning May 4. Her work will support the health care provided at the clinic by Dr. Michael Slatnik and the medical team.

They are registered nurses with additional education at the Master’s level and are qualified to diagnose and treat illnesses, order tests, prescribe medications, manage, monitor and review chronic health conditions.

Evanson has a wealth of experience as a nurse practitioner and nurse. She came to Interior Health from Northern Health and spent time earlier in her career working as a nurse in the Boundary Area.

Residents can book an appointment with Evanson through the Greenwood Medical Clinic (phone: 250-445-6626).

Evanson will still be working three days a week at the Rock Creek Medical Clinic.
