Practice Details:

Do you like beautiful scenery? Skiing? Boating? Fresh local fruit like apples, peaches, cherries and grapes? Kelowna has it all, come join us! The Kelowna General Hospital OB/GYN department is a team is a group of 7 generalists who are looking to recruit for another awesome team member! If you are a FRCSC General Ob/Gyn looking to practice in a welcoming community setting, where the lifestyle opportunities are plentiful, you are reading the right ad. If you are a collegial, talented, hardworking individual who can conceive of a pleasant work life balance, you are reading the right ad. We are recruiting to grow our team to meet the booming demands of the Kelowna catchment area. We are an incredibly collegial group and are looking for someone who wants to be a part of our team.

The successful candidate will augment our team of 7 to provide 1:8 call coverage. We provide consultative obstetrical care to a busy and sometimes very acute obstetrical unit. We receive Level 1 MOCAP funding for call. Our skilled family practice physicians and midwives provide primary obstetrical care, and high-risk patients are shared care. KGH is a level 2B referral centre (with delivery of neonates 30 weeks and beyond), a vital link in the Perinatal Transfer Network, and offers a new perinatal unit. Although the nursery designation is a level 2B, the acuity of the maternity care is closer to a level 3 facility. We have 5 delivery suites and 22 obstetrical beds, to support approximately 1700 deliveries annually. The local Fertility centre provides advanced ART, and subsequently we manage our share of multiple gestations. Our brand-new surgical tower has advanced laparoscopic equipment, as well as usual tools to meet the demands of a generalist OB/GYN surgeon. The Southern Medical Program at UBC campus is located at KGH and we gestate medical students until they are full term doctors ready to be delivered.

Living in the Okanagan means you get to enjoy 4 full seasons. Our summers are hot with access to beautiful Lake Okanagan, and as far as we can tell, Ogopogo is abstinent. Our winters can offer fresh powder, and are very mild. Big White and Silver Star ski resorts are an hour drive away. The Kelowna International Airport is 25 minutes away.

We recommend spending some time working with us to experience the KGH community. We will be hiring as of January 2020, and anticipate another round of recruitment later in 2020 when one of our current members retires. The successful applicant will be asked to complete a mutually satisfactory working visit/locum to be sure we will be a good fit together.
