East Kootenay

Welcome to the East Kootenay Division of Family Practice

The East Kootenay Division of Family Practice (EK Division) represents family physicians in Cranbrook, Creston, Elkford, Fernie, Golden, Invermere, Kimberley and Sparwood BC. Our division is committed to working collaboratively with its members and others in the community to continuously drive better, more integrated, more effective primary care in the region.

Divisions of Family Practice is an initiative of the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC), a collaboration between Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health. The purpose of the Division is to provide a unique, collaborative, and innovative approach to patient care through a tripartite relationship between the Division, the Ministry, and Interior Health.
