The North Saskatchewan River Municipal Health Holdings held their regular meeting on Monday, Sept. 18.

The NSRMHH board was informed of the expected arrival of the new physician. Dr. Mohammad Forghanirad will be arriving mid to end of October. Once his orientation with the Prairie North Health Region and our clinics are complete we expect he will be ready to start his new practice here by the beginning of November.

The board accepted with regret the resignation of Ashley Hill as medical office assistant for our clinics. Diana Elliot has been rehired to take Ashley’s position, and the board welcomes her back to our team.

The board also accepted with regret the resignation of Dr. Mpimposhe, who will be leaving us at the end of the year. Dr Mpomposhe will be missed as she is an integral part of our successful group practice. On behalf of the board and staff we wish Dr. Mpomposhe and her family all the best in their move to a new community. Prairie

North Health Region and NSRMHH will be recruiting for a new physician for our communities.

Dr. Odiegwu will be away from Oct. 14 to 29 and Dr. Tshatshela from Oct. 21 to 30. Celeste Toews is also away from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. The clinics will be booking up faster while our practitioners are away so please keep this in mind when needing routine appointments.

The next regular meeting of the North Saskatchewan River Municipal Health Holdings Board will be held Monday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the RM of Mervin office, Turtleford.
