Long time physician retires

KAWARTHA LAKES-After almost 40 years, Dr. Debbie Rutherford retired from her family medicine practice in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

“On behalf of Council and all residents in Kawartha Lakes, I’d like to sincerely thank Dr. Rutherford for nearly 40 years of dedication to her patients,” said Councillor Andrew Veale. “Her contribution to improving our community is remarkable. She will be missed.”

Dr. Rutherford had practiced in the municipality since June 1980 providing care to over 1300 Kawartha Lakes patients.

“I feel so fortunate to have spent 39 years in family practice in our wonderful community and I thank my patients for entrusting me with their medical care”, commented Dr. Rutherford.

“With deep gratitude, we thank Dr. Rutherford for her longstanding practice and commitment to her patients,” commented Barb van der Veen, President of the Kawartha Lakes Health Care Initiative (KLHCI). “Her dedication and caring will not soon be forgotten and we sincerely wish her the very best in her retirement.”

The Kawartha Lakes Family Doctor Recruitment program continues to actively recruit to bring additional family doctors to the City of Kawartha Lakes.
