Cooperation said to be lacking in Dr. recruiting

The president of the Rock Creek Medical Society calls foul in the recruiting process.

On July 30th I was part of a meeting with Mayor Nipper Kettle, representatives of Interior Health and the Boundary Hospital to discuss solutions to the health care needs of our communities. During that meeting everyone involved promised to work openly and cooperatively together to find the best solution for the area. Mayor Kettle, myself and all others agreed to maintain honest communication so that everyone was aware of each other’s actions and that we were all on the same side, working toward a common goal. In last week’s BC Times Mayor Kettle mentions ongoing discussions he has had which have not been discussed or shared with any of the other concerned parties, including the Interior Health recruiter. As a youngster I was taught that there is a word for a person who promises one thing while doing another. While I do not fault Mr. Kettle for trying to find health services for his community, as Mayor he has an obligation to assure that his words and actions on behalf of the City Of Greenwood are honest and in this case they clearly were not, which unfortunately reflects on the entire community.

Sincerely, Terry Keough – Rock Creek Medical Society President
