The Municipality of Kincardine is very pleased to announce that Council has approved an agreement with Dr. Anna Czyrny to practice as a full time Emergency Room Physician at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre in Kincardine beginning in September 2016. The arrival of Dr. Czyrny will provide much needed relief to the Kincardine physicians’ team.

Dr. Anna Czyrny just completed her second year family medicine residency at McMaster University Medical Centre and opted to further her training by completing a self-designed rural family medicine fellowship in ER medicine, finishing February 2016, at which time she was interested in a family practice with ER. During the additional training, her passion became apparent that her future lies in Emergency Medicine.

Since February, Dr. Czyrny has provided locum coverage in the Kincardine Emergency Department. Dr. Czyrny and her husband John will relocate to Kincardine in September. Until then, she will continue Locum coverage over the coming months.

Dr. Czyrny stated, “Kincardine has many wonderful attributes. Not only are the people warm, the scenery is spectacular. In my short time here I have had the privilege of meeting wonderful people who made my choice to come to Kincardine easy. While locuming in the hospital, I really felt that we were working as a team for the benefit of our patients. I am very excited to be a part of the community and to provide the best care possible”.

On behalf of the physician group in Kincardine, Dr. Ballantine expressed thanks to the Municipality and to Bruce Power for their ongoing assistance in physician recruitment. "We are very excited to have Dr. Czyrny join us, and we are thankful for the much needed support she will bring to the ER and the hospital."
