Efforts of Stettler Regional Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee have been specially recognized by Central Alberta Economic Partnership.

Under the local Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development, the committee received honourable mention for the collaboration and partnership category during CAEP awards ceremony and fall general meeting Nov. 19 in Red Deer.

“We received equal recognition with the winner,” said board of trade executive director Keith Ryder.

“CAEP recognizes that by providing a strong professional medical service in a community, it strengthens the economic well being.”

Stettler physician partnership was recognized for its commitment and efforts to:

• Work collaboratively with municipalities and several community services, institutions and individuals since 2006 on this program to attract and retain physicians to practice in the Stettler Health Services communities.

• Develop a guiding motto to: Recruit the Physician and Retain the Family.

• Involve the community from the beginning with a site visit and by following through on making the physician family feel welcome in the community.

Stettler Regional Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee is a partnership with the Town of Stettler, the County of Stettler, Clearview School Division, the Village of Big Valley, the Summer Village of Rochon Sands, the Summer Village of White Sands local residents and the former David Thompson Health Region.

Accepting the award were county Councilor Joe Gendre (a director with CAEP), Clearview representative Rod McElroy, member-at-large Edna Stuart and Ryder.

“The awards celebrate the development of leading practices, cooperative efforts, and the exchange of innovate ideas,” said Dale Barr, who chairs the board of directors and serves as mayor of the Town of Rimbey.

Founded in 1998, CAEP is a regional economic development alliance of 42 municipal and Indian band members and 14 associate organizations which serves as a model for collaborative community economic development.
