Another physician has joined the Kaslo health care team.
A doctor who was working as a locum has signed up on a part-time basis.
That means four physicians are now offering primary and emergency care during day-time hours Monday to Friday.
Weekend service is still a requirement of the community.
Kootenay Boundary Health Service Administrator Cheryl Whittleton says IH is committed to expanding service.
Whittleton says modern doctors want part-time hours and lifestyle choices but she adds the four doctors in Kaslo are committed to looking at weekend service.
