2 Midwife Positions- Bring a Friend! Moving Allowance
West Country Midwives is seeking a permanent midwife and locum midwife to join our Rocky Mountain House team from this spring through May 2024 due to maternity leaves. There may be an opportunity to join our team in Drayton Valley in a permanent position if you feel that we are a good fit after the locum year.
We have a practice of four midwives in Rocky Mountain House with a combination of primary and team models. Your practice model is flexible and both primary care and a team of 2 may be possible. We are well integrated into the community and do over 50% of births. We have an over 50% out-of-hospital birth rate and have a fabulous birth suite in our clinic. We use Accuro for electronic charting which minimizes paperwork and allows you to have access to charting and reviewing labs at home or on the go. Our clinic is a cute heritage house that feels so warm and welcoming and we have a great staff area for relaxing in and meeting as a team.
The successful candidate must have a strong work ethic, be flexible and understand the needs of rural midwifery. New Registrants are welcome to apply. Strong emergency skills are essential as we are often working remotely or in a Level 1C facility without access to specialists. We have privileges at Rocky Mountain House Healthcare Center which is a level 1C Hospital that most often has C-section capabilities (staffing dependent). We also have privileges at Red Deer Hospital which is a Level 2 facility with Obstetrics and Pediatrics. If you have an interest in teaching prenatal sessions there is an opportunity to use alternative funding for prenatal classes, breastfeeding support, and education as well as drive time to rural visits and births.
Rocky Mountain House is a small town of about 7000 people that is less than 2 hr from Edmonton and Calgary. Rocky is close to the mountains and there are many opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, fishing and so much more! If you have dreamed of a rural life of farming, horseback riding, mountain climbing, hiking, or camping then you will find endless opportunities here. We also have many opportunities to pursue art, music, or drama as there is a vibrant art community to get involved in. We have annual musical theater and stage productions for you to explore your dramatic side.
Have you dreamed of setting up your own rural practice in Alberta? Come do a locum and let us help you make a business plan and get prepared for starting your own rural Alberta practice. Give us a call and chat about how we can work together to grow midwifery in rural Alberta.
