Established midwives under a new practice in the sunny Okanagan
Ponderosa Midwives in beautiful Kelowna, BC is seeking a full-time midwife to join our group in June 2024. We are a new practice of established midwives in the Kelowna community.
The position is a locum opportunity (minimum 6-months but ideal would be 1-year) with the possibility of a long-term position.
We are a cohesive team of 2-3 midwives that work in both solo and team-based models. Our practice operates out of a beautiful clinic space in a residential neighbourhood close to the hospital, hiking and biking trails, and downtown. We have a part-time MOA who does an excellent job of supporting us. We use Accuro for electronic medical records and aspire to minimize our footprint. The shared clinic space offers one comfortable clinic room and an additional space for assessments and resources. Our home birth rate averages around 30%. Our clinic is close to Kelowna General Hospital, which is a level 2 facility. Our interprofessional relationships are strong, including very supportive nursing staff, and we pride ourselves on a cohesive midwifery community in town.
The successful applicant will ideally work in a full-time capacity, in a team structure that is up for discussion. Long-term positions offer up to 2 months of holiday during the contract. Regular off-call time is negotiated within teams, with additional time off when possible. Our practice operates within a cost-share agreement and we pride ourselves on maintaining an affordable and abundant clinic setup. This agreement is available to the successful applicant who wishes to stay on with our practice.
