Specialty Pediatrics

Role and Facility Information

We are recruiting a third pediatrician to join us in providing community consulting services to the region, including a community consulting practice with hospital-based acute care. Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) is a 75 bed regional referral centre serving 80,000 people and includes a designated paediatric ward and level 1B nursery. Hospital-based consulting includes the emergency room, case room, nursery, and inpatient paediatrics.

KBRH offers core specialist physician services including 24-hour Emergency and Trauma Services, Level 2 Laboratory, Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Acute and Obstetrical Care, Orthopedics, Plastics, Urology, Ophthalmology, Psychiatry, Chemotherapy and advanced diagnostic services.

We work closely with a tight knit group of obstetricians, family-practice based obstetrics providers and midwives, as part of our larger maternal-child department.

Our two-pediatrician outpatient clinic, located near the hospital, welcomes a third physician to join our collegial practice. Opportunities exist for career development, including developing and practicing an area of special interest or expertise. Multidisciplinary diabetes, asthma and eating disorders clinics are coordinated locally. The site is affiliated with UBC, and we are closely involved in teaching undergraduate students and family medicine residents. There is also opportunity to provide funded outreach clinics to nearby communities, if interested. A hospital-based paediatric telehealth room will be available for sub specialty consults.

Leadership Development Opportunities are available with Interior Health’s NAVIG8 Program. The NAVIG8 Emerging Physician Leaders Program is a comprehensive leadership development program designed specifically for physicians to address the practical leadership knowledge, behaviours and skills that high potential, emerging medical leaders require to step into leadership roles early in their careers.

For those interested, locum opportunities also available during the recruitment period.
