The St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that Dr. Hakan Pehlivan will be starting a medical practice at the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation Clinic.
“We are very appreciative that the hospital foundation is able to provide opportunities to our physicians to practice so close to the hospital,” said Greg Hoffort, the executive director of St. Joseph’s Hospital.
“The proximity of the foundation clinic to the hospital allows our doctors optimal access to the hospital, in turn, allowing them to offer immediate primary health care to our patients.”
Pehlivan is one of Estevan’s longest-serving doctors, and is a well-respected physician in southeast Saskatchewan. He graduated from Turkey’s Uludag University in 2002. He has been practicing in Estevan since 2009.
“The mandate of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation’s clinic has always been to fill this building with physicians,” said Becky Conly, executive director of the SJHF. “We have worked hard to make this happen, and we are so proud to announce that our foundation clinic is now fully occupied by practicing physicians.”
Dr. Pehlivan’s practice, to be known as the Medicure Medical Clinic, will officially open on Sept. 6.
