Cindy Snider, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator for KLHCI noted how working with the doctors to facillitate a smooth transition has been a pleasure.
 “It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Millson and Dr. Young to facilitate this recruitment. It is very rewarding to know that Dr. Young’s patients will continue to receive their family medicine care in the City of Kawartha Lakes at the location, and with the staff, that they are familiar. I am very proud to represent KLHCI and CKL when attending recruitment events throughout the province, particularly when they are the doorway to a successful recruitment.”
Dr. Young, also appreciates how well this recruitment process has worked for her patients.
Dr. Young states, “I am very pleased that Dr. Millson has agreed to care for all patients in my practice. Dr. Millson has been granted Active Privileges with the Ross Memorial Hospital allowing patients to be cared for in the community and hospital. I will be able to begin my retirement with the knowledge that my patients will have no gaps in their ongoing care needs. I would like to commend KLHCI for all their excellent work to recruit family doctors to our area and am proud to have recently become a member of their Board of Directors. It has been a pleasure to work together to facilitate Dr. Millson’s arrival.
Robyn McNabb, President of KLHCI, states that, “KLHCI would like to welcome Dr. Millson to the City of Kawartha Lakes and wishes her many years of satisfaction, both personally and professionally, within the community.”
