Ladysmith residents express their gratitude to departing doctor, urge others to do the same

Gene and Sally Pierce voice their support for departing physician, Dr. Vivian Kilvert, whose contract with VIHA is not being renewed.

Editor:

Please help us thank Dr. Kilvert for her thorough, professional and personal care as our physician.

Dr. Kilvert has blessed us and our whole community with her compassionate, forthright manner for some four years. She will be sorely missed.

We were saddened when we recently learned that Dr. Kilvert’s partnership and contract through the Ladysmith Family Practice Clinic is to end Aug. 9.

We hope that she will find a way to stay linked with our community.

She is a highly gifted medical professional, and this IS her home.

In our opinion, the clinic (VIHA) and we as a community simply cannot afford to “discard” such personal and professional talent. We need more excellent doctors right here in Ladysmith!

We suspect many of you are also saddened by news of this sudden change.

Please make your loud voices heard, by sharing your thanks directly with Dr. Kilvert and by expressing your thoughts and concerns in writing to one or both of these officers at VIHA:

Victoria Power, director PHC/CDM/Rural Health VIHA

and/or

Dr. Clair Biglow, medical director PHC/CDM VIHA

You may write to one or both of these officers at the following address: Royal Jubilee Hospital, 1952 Bay St., Victoria B.C., V8R 1J8.

Thank you for your support.

Gene and Sally Peirce

Ladysmith
