Dr. Launny Lowden, General Pathologist
- East Kootenay Regional Hospital
Practicing General Pathology in a community hospital within the BC Interior is a dream come true for me. Strong connections with local clinicians and a dedicated laboratory staff make for a highly collegial work environment, and the privilege of caring for patients across multiple platforms (chemistry, hematology, transfusion, microbiology, and surgical pathology) and following their outcomes over time cannot be overstated. As a pathologist, I feel valued and appreciated as an important member of the clinical team. Combined with the stunning beauty and endless recreation that the mountains have to offer, BC is the perfect place to live, play, and work at a career that is truly rewarding.
