Dr. Janice McLaughlin’s Patient Update

March 7/22

Dear Dr. McLaughlin’s patients,

Although we reached out to many physicians we were not able to find a replacement to take over Dr. McLaughlin’s practice.

Other practices at ValleyCare are at capacity, so effective immediately we are unable to provide care for Dr. McLaughlin’s patients. These patients will have to seek care with other providers i.e. walk-in clinics, urgent care clinics or other family practices. Your records will remain in our care.

To be placed in a queue for a family physician you can register at the Comox Valley Divisions of Family Practice’s site for unattached patients.   Click link below.

Comox Valley Foundry will be opening very soon to care for anyone between the ages of 12-24.

Thank you,

ValleyCare Staff


Updated Dec 22/2021

Update Nov 25/2021

For Dr. McLaughlin’s patients: ValleyCare Medical is excited to announce that we have locum coverage for her practice extended into the new year.

You can continue to come to ValleyCare for your medical needs. Simply call our front desk to book your next appointment.

Thank you for your patience,

ValleyCare Staff

Update Oct 20/2021

We want you to know we are actively looking for a physician to join our clinic to hopefully take on the remainder of the patients under Dr. McLaughlin, we can not make any guarantees. Dr. McCallum has now reached capacity.

Please follow the link on the previous page to register with the CV Health Registry. As physicians in the Valley start accepting patients the CV Health Registry is placing patients with physicians.

There are 2 walk-in clinics in the Valley to care for you during the transition phase. Washington Park Medical Clinic (our sister clinic above Superstore) has your chart on file and would be the best place to visit until a family physician becomes available.

Thank you,

ValleyCare staff

Update July 28/2021

Dr. McLaughlin will be retiring from Family Practice December 31, 2021. Both Dr. McLaughlin and Dr. McCallum will continue to provide family practice care until the end of the year.

Dr. McCallum will continue to serve some of the practice. Dr. McLaughlin will be available at Foundry Comox Valley for youth ages 12-24, and as other doctors within ValleyCare Medical become available a waitlist will be established.

In an effort to keep our phone lines open for patients booking appointments please do not call our front desk for more information.

This page will be updated with new information over the next coming weeks. Please check back.

Thank you,

ValleyCare staff
