After a six-month search, the Sea to Sky Community Health Council has finally found a new general surgeon.
The health region was left without a surgeon after Dr. Richard Patterson departed in February for a more lucrative position with an American hospital.
Dr. William Gawley joins the Squamish, Whistler, and Pemberton medical staff August 1.
Dr. Gawley is presently the Chief of General Surgery in Burin, Newfoundland. He received his medical training in Dublin, Ireland and attained his surgical specialty status in Ireland, Scotland and Canada.
