Castlegar City council is happy, but confused about Interior Heath’s announcement that two physicians have been recruited for the community.
IH told council Monday night that a pair of full time doctors will be starting in August and September.
However, mayor Lawrence Chernoff admits he has no idea if those are the same two doctors their city-hired recruiter has lined up as well.
Chernoff is surprised at the lack of communication from the two sides.
Castlegar and Areas I and J previously spent $50,000 to hire a physician recruiter as two local doctors plan to retire in the near future.
