The TD Bank Group stepped up big time to support Atikokan's physician recruitment and retention efforts last week, with a $25,000 contribution to the program. The business, retail and investment sides of the company all pitched in with, in the words of recruiter Brittany Freeman, spectacular help, that is really going to make a difference. Pictured are Jason Mychasiw (of TD's commercial banking division), Doug Moynihan and Brittany Freeman (AGH), Coral Mihalick (TD Waterhouse), Maureen James (TD-Canada Trust Atikokan), and Chris Benz (branch manager, Fort Frances-Atikokan).
Atikokan, which is designated for seven physicians, will be down to 3.5 shortly. Recruiting for a full-time resident physician is ongoing, and efforts to find temporary placement MDs (locums) to cover a coming maternity leave is also in full swing.
