Role and Facility Information

The Sunshine Coast is one of BC's most scenic regions. Against the backdrop of the Coastal Mountain Range, the lower Sunshine Coast area contains a host of mountain bike and cross country ski trails, miles of beaches and numerous activities on and off the water for the outdoor enthusiast. The area is home to nearly 31,000 residents including a large indigenous population who remain very active in community. The population of the coast is primarily based in the three larger towns of Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender Harbour. The community is accessible by ferry from West Vancouver via Horseshoe Bay and from Powell River via Saltery Bay.

Sechelt Hospital is a 50 bed acute care hospital which serves the entire Sunshine Coast. The hospital provides acute surgical, medical, psychiatric and obsterical inpatient/outpatient services and is supported by laboratory, diagnostic imaging (including CT) and rehabilitation services. The coast is also home to 6 private clinics covering the coast from Gibsons to Madeira Park supported by about 40 general practitioners.

Duties encompass emergency as well as elective general surgery and endoscopy. There will be access to the operating room for scheduled and emergency surgeries. There will be an expectation to share the surgical slate time and the call schedule with the local general surgeon already in practice. The Health Authority expects 100% Level 1 MOCAP coverage supported by local surgeons and locum support from the Rural Specialist Locum Program.

Sechelt is designated a Level ā€œCā€ Rural Community and the successful candidate may be eligible for rural retention program benefits.
