Doctor Shortage Forcing Taylor’s Medical Clinic to Shut Doors

Taylor’s Mayor, Fred Jarvis is adamant the community needs a medical clinic.

Mayor Jarvis says he hopes the closure is temporary, and plans to continue efforts to recruit a doctor to Taylor.


The clinic has provided medical services to Taylor since 2009.

Until now, doctors have provided services at the Taylor clinic under contract with the Fort St. John medical clinic.

Over the past year the region lost several doctors, resulting in a shortage of medical care, as well as the communities were forced to terminate their operating agreement.
