Dr. Doug Cochrane, board chair, Interior Health –

“The new urgent and primary-care centre will make a big difference in the lives of Kelowna-area residents looking for local access to health-care services. By having an expert team of health-care professionals providing same-day care and facilitating attachment to primary-care practices, people will have better support for their immediate and long-term health-care needs.”

Dr. Kathleen Ross, president, Doctors of BC –

Dr. Michael Koss, physician lead, Central Okanagan Divisions of Family Practice –

“The Central Okanagan Division of Family Practice is proud to be part of the opening of the new Kelowna Urgent and Primary Care Centre. This centre will strengthen primary care in our community, ensure patients have access to the health-care services they need and enable patients to receive longitudinal care by attaching them to a primary-care provider. We want to thank the Ministry of Health, Interior Health and First Nations partners for their work in bringing this UPCC to our community.”

Sherri Kensall, acting board chair, Association of Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC –

“Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC are pleased to see that the knowledge, skills and expertise of the entire health-care team will be utilized to improve access to health care for all British Columbians through urgent and primary-care centres. We believe that this approach will be pivotal in ensuring B.C. families can access health-care services, and we are excited to see the launch of another urgent and primary-care centre in B.C.”

Gail Given, chair, Central Okanagan Regional Hospital District –
