Hear from Comox Valley doctors
“Can’t think of a better place to live and practice… from skiing on Mount Washington, playing in the river, sailing in the ocean, and everything in between. I find the community a perfect size to raise a family. I also find the medical communities outstanding, energetic, and committed. The new North Island Hospital should make this valley an even better place to practice.”
DR. KEVIN SWANSON, COURTENAY MEDICAL CLINIC
