South Okanagan Simillkameen

Welcome to the South Okanagan Similkameen Division of Family Practice

The South Okanagan Similkameen Division of Family Practice is a membership organization, and a place for primary care providers to connect, collaborate and create positive change. Our Division, which represents primary care providers in the communities of Keremeos, Oliver, Osoyoos, Penticton, Princeton and Summerland, is a leader in the province when it comes to supporting our full-service physician network, team-based care, long term care, maternity care and many more healthcare improvements — making the South Okanagan Similkameen a great place to practice, and a great place to live.

South Okanagan Similkameen Patient Attachment List

A centralized waitlist is now available to patients in the South Okanagan Similkameen who are seeking a primary care provider (family physician or a nurse practitioner).


Please note that due to the high volume of unattached patients in our community and shortage of doctors accepting new patients, we are only able to offer the waitlist at this time. Please click on the button below to get yourself, a family member, or a person in your care registered on the South Okanagan Similkameen Patient Attachment List.

For non-emergency immediate care, please visit your local walk-in clinic.
