Dr. Judy Patterson attends regularly, please look for posted notices throughout town.
It is suggested that an appointment be made in advance. Our health professionals are in regular contact with doctors in Thunder Bay, Sioux Lookout and Winnipeg. However, if complications arise and conditions warrant hospitalization, the patient may be medi-evaced to a larger centre.
Since 1999 the Administration of the Clinic is provided by the Municipal Office who strives to ensure that there is adequate medical personnel and equipment at all times. The Ministry of Health provides the major portion of the finances for the operation of our Clinic.
In the past several years, the Township of Pickle Lake was successful in signing a Community Sponsored Contract (CSC) with various doctors. We are very grateful to Dr. Judy Patterson who has chosen to set up practice in our community!
The Council for the Township of Pickle Lake resurrected the Health Care Committee in 2012, with a mandate to ensure that Pickle Lake secures the services of a doctor, as well as other health care providers, for the residents of our community.
