Additional Doctors coming to Martensville Collective Health and Wellness

by City of Martensville

Martensville Collective Health and Wellness (MCHW) along with the City of Martensville are pleased to announce upcoming changes for physician services in the community, including the arrival of a new doctor who completed a residency in the United States.

Dr. Kira Schaab will officially be joining the MCHW in August. Dr. Schaab is originally from Yorkton and completed her Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science at McGill University before receiving her medical degree at the University of Medicine and Health Sciences in St. Kitts. She recently completed her Family Medicine residency Training at the University of Wyoming and will be looking forward to practicing outpatient family medicine and obstetrics.

Dr. Schaab is joined in Martensville by her husband Matthew and 18-month-old daughter and are looking forward to establishing themselves in the area. Dr. Schaab said, “After so much time away, we are looking forward to putting down roots and finding our forever community. We knew we wanted to be back in Saskatchewan, near friends and family and upon meeting the team at the Martensville clinic we knew this is where we wanted to be, so thanks to Dr. Adamus and the City of Martensville for helping bring us here”.

Mayor Kent Muench is pleased to see another doctor come to the community and wished the best to Dr. Schaab and her family as they arrive back in the Province. Muench noted, “We were excited at the opportunity to work with our local clinic to add a doctor who considers Saskatchewan home. Doctor recruitment is a challenge, but we will continue to do what we can and work with our health providers and the SHA to continue to enhance healthcare in our community and region”.

Dr. Allison Adamus is pleased to have Dr. Schaab join the team at Martensville Collective Health and Wellness, “We are grateful to the City of Martensville for working alongside us to bring Dr. Schaab back to her home province, and more importantly, to our community. In addition to Dr. Schaab, we are also pleased to formally announce that Dr. Brigid Von Dewitz and Dr. Vanessa Leung Shing will be joining our team in August. Both Dr. Von Dewitz and Dr. Leung Shing have worked with us in the past and we are honored to have them both choose our clinic and our community as their workplace”.

The new doctors will join Dr. Amanda Walker and Dr. Lanre Okunola to bring the total to five practicing physicians by fall at MCHW, with Dr. Adamus overseeing the clinic and business operations and providing intermittent medical services, while maintaining her role with the Saskatchewan Health Authority as co-Area Department Lead of Family Medicine for the Saskatoon Area.

Upcoming announcements around the intake of patients and additional services at MCHW will be provided to the public at a later date.
