Peachland’s doctors moving out of the district

All the doctors at Beach Avenue Medical Centre are leaving

Peachland’s only medical clinic may close if it can’t find a new medical director and all of its doctors are moving out of the district.

Beach Avenue Medical Centre’s current medical director Dr. John Brinkerhoff is set to retire at the end of March. The business is unable to operate without a medical director and none of the current doctors in the clinic have expressed interest in taking the position, said clinic manager Lisa Guderyan, in a previous interview with Capital News.

The clinic is currently searching for a replacement, and according to the clinic’s website, all four doctors will be moving out of Peachland. Dr. Jeff Hoekstra will move his practice to Summerland, Dr. Alanna Leverrier and Dr. Chantal Fourie are moving to Towne Centre Medical Clinic in West Kelowna and Dr. Brian Mackay has yet to announce his moving date or location.

Guderyan said patients are welcome to follow them to their new practices.

She’s hoping someone will step forward and take the position, as she said the Okanagan is a desirable place to live.
