Two new doctors got a warm Fernie welcome on February 1.

A potluck dinner was held at the Seniors’ Centre to welcome a husband and wife team, Dr. Deena Case and Dr. Mike Stuckey, who will be sharing one position.

The couple are from Australia and will be here for two years. They have two young sons, Arden and Isaac, and will be working out of the Sparling  East Medical Centre. Both will work in surgery and obstetrics and one will also practice anesthesiology, after being recruited by Interior Health and Dr. Michaels.

The two doctors said they are happy to be here and look forward to getting to know the community.
