Just in time for the upcoming summer season, Saugeen Shores will have a new full time Emergency Room doctor at the Southampton Hospital.
Saugeen Shores CAO and member of the Bruce Power Recruitment Committee, David Smith says Dr. Gavin Bock has agreed to terms with the municipality.
Smith says the doctor will be an ER doctor, "so that ensures the continuity of care at our emergency room."
He goes on to say that Dr. Gavin Bock is already in town doing some locum work but will start emergency room duties shortly.
Smith says the doctor has expressed an interest in living in Saugeen Shores full time and has agreed to a 5-year contract to work in ER.
Dr. Gavin Bock should not be confused with Dr. Graeme Bock, who is also a physician in Saugeen Shores.
