Dr. Callery Joins Community Health Centre

Kawartha Lakes, March 14, 2017:  The Kawartha Lakes Health Care Initiative (KLHCI) and Community Care Health and Care Network are pleased to announce the recruitment of Dr. Emily Callery.  Effective March 14, 2017, Dr. Callery will replace the retiring Dr. David Klein by accepting care for all patients in his practice. 


Dr. Callery received her Doctor of Medicine from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2012 and completed her Family Medicine Residency at the University of Toronto. Dr. Callery first became interested in the City of Kawartha Lakes  (CKL) during her participation in a Family Medicine Residents Weekend hosted by KLHCI in 2013.  She has been providing locum services to the Community Health Centre since 2015.  “I am pleased to accept this permanent position with the Community Health Centre and look forward to meeting those patients that I have not as yet met,” states Dr. Callery.


“It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Callery and the Community Health Centre to facilitate this recruitment.  It is very rewarding to know that Dr. Klein’s patients will continue to receive their primary care at the same location and the same staff with which they are familiar.  I am very proud to represent KLHCI and CKL when attending recruitment events throughout the province, particularly when they are the doorway to a successful recruitment,” states Cindy Snider, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator for KLHCI. 


“Community Care Health and Care Network’s Community Health Centre is pleased to welcome Dr. Callery to our Primary Care Team.  We look forward to working with her as we continue to provide care and increase our access to clinical services to the residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes”, states Catherine Danbrook, CEO.


Sheila-Mae Young, President of KLHCI, states that, “KLHCI would like to welcome Dr. Callery to the City of Kawartha Lakes and wishes her many years of satisfaction, both personally and professionally, within the community.”
