Dr. Rob Bailey & family will be relocating to the area from their most recent home in Alberta. As a family they enjoy the outdoors and have visited Creston Valley, with he having provided some locum services over the past months. Dr. Bailey graduated medicine in South Africa, and has been residing/working most recently in Alberta. He is a GP with enhanced skills in Surgical procedures as well as clinical practice & ER coverage. It is anticipated his practice here will commence in March.
Intake will be managed via the provincial list in order received, with applicants being notified directly by the clinic. Please do not contact local clinics until you have been contacted first by the clinic. While his practice will be based at Blue Heron Medical Clinic, it is reminded that Creston Valley residents without a family doctor should register (once only) via the provincial portal as per the centralized waitlist for the Creston area which is maintained online. Please visit the East Kootenay Division of Family Practice website to register at:
For those without access to a computer or smartphone, the Creston Valley Public Library and Town Hall have a limited number of computers and staff for those persons needing assistance. If you have already registered with the waitlist, please do not register again.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Bailey and family to Creston!
