New Family Doctor Recruitment Video Aims To Highlight The Many Reasons Physicians Should Make The Move To Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Kawartha Lakes Health Care Initiative (KLHCI) has developed a new Family Doctor Recruitment Virtual Community Visit video.

We currently require more than 18 family doctors in the City of Kawartha Lakes and recruitment efforts are ongoing. This number does not include the new Summit Wellness Centre in Coboconk which officials say they will begin recruiting for as soon as shovels are in the gournd.

Officials say this video was developed during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to showcase the City of Kawartha Lakes to potential family doctor recruits who could not physically visit due to pandemic protocols. Even though there are continuing to be changes in the pandemic protocols, KLHCI is positive that being able to provide this video on a variety of websites and social media outlets will entice those that may be looking into our area to contact Cindy Snider, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator, to discuss practice opportunities further.

KLHCI partnered with OneLook Productions to produce the video. All of the principals of this company have ties to the area which meant they really understood the importance of the video and its content.

Lisa Green, KLHCI President states, “We wish to thank all of the family doctors who are part of the video along with Kelly Isfan (CEO, Ross Memorial Hospital) and Mayor Andy Letham. The video would not have been possible without all of their support and participation.”

KLHCI is a non-profit, charitable organization whose mandate is to recruit and retain family doctors for the City of Kawartha Lakes. Anyone wishing to be part of this community effort by either volunteering on the Board of Directors, or donating financially to support the ongoing family doctor recruitment and retention programs, should contact Cindy Snider, Recruitment & Retention Coordinator at 705-328-6098 or visit the KLHCI website at
