Central Health welcomes new doctor to Fogo Island

February 3, 2023

Central Health is very pleased to announce the recruitment of a physician for the Fogo Island/Change Islands region. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Maureen Gibbons, who will be starting in April at the Fogo Island Health Centre, on Fogo Island. Dr. Gibbons will be taking on a full-time permanent position.

In addition to providing outpatient primary care, Dr. Gibbons will provide coverage of emergency room services for the region. Emergency Services will also be supported by locum physicians, and virtual ER, in an effort to reduce temporary closures. The coverage schedule for emergency room services will continue to be communicated to the public as per Central Health communications practices.

The Regional Health Authority would like to thank its Recruitment and Retention team, the Provincial Government, and the people of the Fogo Island and Change Islands for their efforts and support throughout this process. Central Health continues its efforts in recruitment for this area for both physicians and healthcare providers.
