Specialty Family Practitioner/General Practitioner

Subspecialty General

Role and Facility Information

We are seeking a full-time Family Physician (FP) to join our busy general practices at the Eagle Creek Medical Clinic (ECMC).

The Clinic is a new facility only 4 years old and currently has 5 full-time family practices, the High Complexity Care Team, and a large Walk-in Clinic (EagleCreekMedicalClinic.ca). We are to be a flagship clinic for the Western Communities PCN, and have approved Ministry/Island Health status for expansion into an adjacent 2000 square feet of space (4000 square feet total). This expansion will have us add 2 NP and 2 FP positions (as well as one SW and RN).

The incoming FP will work in a fee-for-service (FFS) model and is expected to attach ~1500 patients to his/her panel. In addition, the FP will work one walk-in clinic shift per week (70/30 split) to help care for our exceptionally high number of unattached patients in the Western communities.

We have an extensive wait-list of unattached patients and expertise in building quick and efficient rosters (including from patients with retiring FP's). Three of our physicians are Clinical Instructors in the Island Medical and Family Medicine Residency Program. Many of our physicians focus on Complex Care medicine and in turn are high billers (MSP and private billing). The Clinic also offers an additional cosmetic Botox clinic, a large call group shared with our sister clinic (Wheelhouse Integrative Clinic), and the option for full-scope FP if one wishes (Dr. Simcoff, for instance, does LTC and full-scope maternity). We offer experienced staff, an exceptional clinic manager (who is also a Registered Nurse) and an attractive work-location (the brand new Eagle Creek Village adjacent to the Victoria General Hospital).

The EMR we use is OSCAR and we are a paperless medical clinic. Free parking is an added benefit, as is easy, ground floor access for our patients. Lab and diagnostic imaging is literally across the road at VGH. Eagle Creek Village also hosts a physio clinic, sleep clinic, optometry clinic, dental clinic, pharmacy, hearing/ENT clinic, surgical consultants, and internal medicine clinic (Revive). There are multiple restaurants and services on the site as well (e.g., Quality Foods), making it an ideal working location.

The Clinic offers an innovative facility that will be one of the first fully-integrated team-based PCN clinics on the island (representing an important collaboration between Island Health, the Ministry of Health, and the SI Division of FP). The clinic position offered here will be 'turnkey' and no financial buy-in is expected or sought after. Our experienced doctors will ensure that the new physician is well supported and always encouraged for 'hallway consults' whenever needed.
