Family Physician - Private Clinic

Blind Bay

“Bringing health care closer to home” ~ Blind Bay (population of 4,000) is a growing community settled on the banks of Shuswap Lake with all its beauty of the surrounding Columbia mountain range, offering a natural setting with stunning lake views. Located off the Trans Canada Highway with a rural flavour, yet still close enough to Kamloops, and Kelowna for the City Life and international Airports. What makes our community different is ... the low stress environment where one can easily say it’s a great place to raise a family. Our homes are affordable, but the best part is it’s a place where you can stroll through alpine meadows, smell the fresh air, hike, bike, or ski on the endless trails, or jump into some incredibly warm crystal clear water. We are central to Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Sun Peaks and Big White ski mountains, and home of some amazing Golf courses. We invite you to come boat, sail, fish, water ski or swim, dine on fine local fare, and if that is not enough then come tour the vineyards and taste the wine, explore hidden natural treasures, witness the amazing cycle of the salmon and watch the clear night sky and enjoy our amazing sunsets. It’s a place where one can change their lifestyle. Blind Bay is located on the southern shore of Shuswap Lake, 29 km (18 mi) northwest of Salmon Arm and 9 km's (5.5 mi) east of Sorrento.
