A new physician is in Creston and working as a locum, according to recruiter Marilin States.

“With pleasure, the Creston Valley Health Working Group welcomes Dr. Kurt Jordan, who will provide locum services beginning this month,” she said last week.

Jordan, and his wife Victoria, “are interested in considering Creston as a place where they would stay indefinitely, once they have a chance to live, work and experience life here,” States said.

Jordan will provide locum services at three clinics, which will allow him the opportunity to practice with many local physicians in various clinical settings.

“A trend has long been established of physicians wishing to locum in a community before engaging in their own practice,” States said. “ It is in this way that several of our current physicians found and fell in love with Creston, with the community embracing them and their family members, as well as the establishment of working relationships with their professional peers.”

Kurt and Victoria Jordan came to Creston from Moncton NB, where he was doing family practice locums, emergency room coverage and low-risk obstetrics, all of which will serve him well for his practice in Creston. Jordan attended the UBC Medical School before doing his family practice residency in Dalhousie.

Victoria has experience as a French teacher.  She was previously licensed and taught in BC where she worked part time in the Lower Mainland before they moved east for Kurt’s residency.  She is interested in further French teaching experiences.

“We are hopeful that Kurt and Victoria will enjoy the wonderful hospitality of the citizens of Creston Valley and all the riches the valley has to offer, and that they may decide to call Creston home,” States said.
