Interlake-Eastern RHA welcomes Dr. Chris Williams to Lac du Bonnet and Pinawa
Interlake-Eastern RHA welcomes Dr. Chris Williams to the region. He will be taking call in Pinawa Hospital emergency room and seeing patients at both the Lac du Bonnet Clinic and Pinawa Primary Health Care Centre.

“I fell in love with Pinawa and Lac du Bonnet the first time I came here to visit,” says Dr. Williams, “For me, the appeal of this whole area was the water and the friendly people.”

Dr. Williams grew up in Nigeria but also spent some of his childhood in the United Kingdom. He attended medical school in Nigeria and did his GP in the United Kingdom. Growing up, he wanted to be an engineer but when his mother suffered an illness, his ambitions quickly changed.

“I wanted to help my mom so I went to medical school, “ remembers Dr. Williams, “And from there I fell in love with medicine, especially emergency medicine and the prevention of diseases.”

Dr. Williams, who holds a Masters in Public Health, has a keen interest in disease prevention and alcohol addiction and prevention.  His background working in the United Kingdom health care system has given him a solid foundation for working in our Canadian health care system.

Dr. Williams, his partner Lena and two daughters enjoy photography, travelling and theme parks. His family is still living in the United Kingdom while he settles into his new position. To unwind, he enjoys music but is also looking forward to enjoying Manitoba’s waterways on a watercraft as soon as possible.

Dr. Williams will be working at the Pinawa Primary Health Care Centre on Mondays and Tuesdays and in Lac du Bonnet from Wednesday through to Friday. He will be accepting new patients at both clinics.

Patients can phone to make an appointment with Dr. Williams at either the Pinawa Clinic by phoning 204-753-2351 or the Lac du Bonnet Clinic by phoning 204-345-8173.

Please be sure to have your Manitoba health card out when phoning to make an appointment.
