outstanding specialist support and services, and new hospital being developed.
Your home and workplace are surrounded by the stunning coastal mountain range,
Skeena River eco-system, lush ancient rain forests – an hour from the Pacific
Ocean. Enjoy the mild winters, back and cross country skiing, heli-skiing,
snowshoeing, snowmobiling, indoor and outdoor skating, ice-fishing and an in the
evening you can soak in the local hot springs. In the summer, go golfing, hiking,
mountain biking, camping, rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, boating and
swimming in the pristine lakes and of course, go fishing in the Skeena and
tributaries for world-renowned salmon and steelhead while keeping an eye out for
the rare Kermode or “Spirit Bear”. In the evening, relax in one of the many pubs,
restaurants or the local brewery, or go dancing and see local and visiting musicians
perform, or maybe attend one of the art, musical or comedian shows. Go local and
shop at the Northwest biggest farmer’s market. Feeling creative? Then, audition
and act at the local theatre. Whatever your interests are, you will have access to
numerous activities and amenities within minutes from your home – reclaim your
work-life balance and join us!
The general pediatric office is in close proximity to the Mills Memorial Hospital. The
pediatrician will join a group of wonderful colleagues and would be responsible for
office work and hospital on call (1 in 4). Terrace is the referral centre for the NW
central corridor, the Hazeltons, the Bulkley Valley in the Northwest Region. Hospital
duties will include consultation to the emergency department, care of pediatric
inpatients, high-risk stabilization, and care of newborns prior to transfer to larger
centers if indicated. Teaching to family practice residents and 3rd and 4th year
medical students will be expected periodically.
Call includes taking phone calls from neighboring communities, stabilizing
newborns before transport – we aim for above 34 weeks, stabilizing complex
pediatric patients before transport, and managing stable inpatients. Mills Memorial
Hospital currently does not have designated pediatric beds or a NICU.
Terrace is a vibrant, entrepreneurial and friendly community with tertiary catchment
area of 51000 people, clean air, affordable living and real-estate. Historically
serving and sustained by the forestry industry, Terrace has grown into a regional
service centre with government, educational and social services as biggest
employers as well as a strong presence of construction, trades, and transportation
infrastructure and growth in the manufacturing and tourism industries. The recent
LNG Canada final investment decision, the largest energy investment in Canadian
history, along with a number of other industrial projects will further develop and
strengthen the region’s economy.
Educational opportunities abound with three secondary and seven elementary
schools, one French Immersion, one Francophone School and one long-distance
education school, a Coast Mountain College and a University of British Columbia
