What’s up doc, and where are you? — 2 Comments

  1. why are we not looking at attracting some nurse practitioners? They can take some of the pressure of the doctors.

  2. The lack of doctors is a problem and constraint for the economic development of Sooke as discussed over the past year in the Mayor’s Economic Development Advisory Group that meets monthly.

    One solution could be the building of a cottage hospital combined with a specialist medical service that could drive medical tourism in the region. This would help not only solve the shortage of physicians but also contribute to economic development, especially if there was an innovation component to inspire and support medical inventors.

    Financing of such a facility and service and tourist attraction might come from a 30 or 40 year municipal bond issue. This would be a substantial yet long-term investment.
