Interior Health welcomes Dr. Gursharan Gill to the community. Dr. Gill joined Dr. Sandeep Sharma as a regular physician at the Chase Medical Clinic on July 23. They will continue to be supported by locums and a nurse practitioner.

Gill will primarily be taking on patients previously seen by Dr. Mahadava Krishantha, as well as providing support to the Chase Health Centre Emergency Department.

Gill will accept new patients as space permit. Those interested  in registering for a spot on the waitlist can contact the clinic at 250-679-1420.

Interior Health applauds the patience Chase residents have shown during recent changes to the physician group and the resulting impact on ER hours of operation.

In addition, IH continues to actively recruit for a third physician for Chase, and is optimistic that this recruitment will be successful in the coming months.

The Village of Chase has worked collaboratively with the province, HealthMatch BC and Interior Health as partners in the recruitment process.

IH officials maintain they are committed to keeping the community updated about health-care services.

If you have questions, please contact Philip Snyman at (250) 851-7954.
