Perched on the edge of Lake Windermere, in the valley between the Rocky and Purcell Mountain ranges, Invermere is the economic hub of the Columbia Valley. Offering spectacular mountain scenery, abundant outdoor activity and nearby Fairmont and Radium hot springs, Invermere benefits from a healthy tourism industry. Recreation and culture unite with year-round recreational opportunities including heli-skiing, snowmobiling, white-water rafting, and golf. Local and international artists’ work can be found at galleries throughout the city and relaxed downtown district. Also birdwatcher’s paradise, Invermere celebrates the return of over 250 species of birds with its annual Wings over the Rockies Festival each May.
Facility Details — Invermere & District Hospital:
The Invermere Hospital is a unique facility in that all healthcare services across the continuum of care are under one roof, providing for a very cohesive approach to patient care. The hospital is a level 1 community hospital with a very busy state of the art, well functioning 12 bed Emergency Department. Invermere and District Hospital was built in 1991 and the Columbia House Residential Care was added in 1994 and then later expanded to 35 beds in 2005. A new public/private share residential care, Ivy House, has recently been built in the next block.
Practice Details:

We seek a full scope rural family practitioner to join our 6 physician Chisel Peak Clinic, located just 3 blocks from the hospital. The ideal candidate will welcome the ER, Hospital, residential and clinic variety in a practice. Low risk obstetrics is an option but not required.

While ER is a requirement, there is capacity to shape your practice to your particular interests and there is flexibility in determining both the size of practice and clinic office hours you prefer to work. Our EMR system is IntraHealth and our patient base is a nice mix of senior, young families, and during peak seasons, vacationers. We cover our own hospital inpatients during weekday working hours, and the ER physician on call is also the duty doctor who sees inpatients after hours and on weekends. Typically we might work 4 days a week and cover 1X 12 hr shift each week and 1:4 weekends we cover two 12 hour shifts (one night, one day). We enjoy both Level 1 MOCAP (on-call funding) as well as Rural Emergency Enhancement Funding (REEF) for our ER work.

We would be happy to talk to you about this opportunity.

Please contact us to learn why it really is such a great place to live and work!
