New doctors to take up residency in Saugeen shores

During the final Council meeting of 2020 on December 14th, three new doctor agreements were approved by Town Council.

Three new doctors have, in fact, committed to practicing in Saugeen Shores now and in the near future.

The recruitment of doctors is a top priority and I am pleased to see the continued success of our physician recruitment program at bringing new doctors to the area,” says Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “This year has reminded us of the importance of local healthcare.  The addition of these three new doctors is great news for Saugeen Shores.”

The agreements are a direct outcome of the physician recruitment program, funded in partnership by the Town of Saugeen Shores, the Municipality of Kincardine and Bruce Power.
