There is a new doctor in the house.

Haliburton Highlands Health Services shared the news of the newest physician to join the team, Dr. Devon Tilbrook at today’s board meeting

H.H.H.S. President and C.E.O. Carolyn Plummer says the hiring of a new doctor is a great way to start off 2018.

Plummer adds in a perfect world, health services would be able to hire two more doctors.

Aside from her duties at the Haliburton Hospital, Tilbrook will also have a practice at the Haliburton Highlands Family Health Team clinic where she will be taking over for a retiring physician.

She comes to Haliburton from the Toronto area.
