Hazelton - Travel

You can travel to and from Hazelton either by flying and driving, or simply driving.

Fly to either Smithers or Terrace via Hawk Air or Air Canada. Several daily flights connect these destinations with Vancouver and points beyond.

Wrinch Memorial Hospital is a 45 minute drive from Smithers or a 75 minute drive from Terrace. It is just south of Highway 16, the main road through Northwestern BC that connects Prince George and Prince Rupert.

Our accommodation is within a short walking distance of the hospital and clinic, as well as the immediate community. The towns are a bit of a distance so we provide a vehicle for short trips and for grocery shopping in nearby Smithers.  Outside of its priority use for home care visits, the car is available on a “first come-first served” basis to locums and students from a variety of health care departments.

Hazelton - Accommodation

United Church Health Services owns and maintains temporary accommodations a short walk from the hospital and clinic. Accommodations range from one bedroom apartments for medical students to mobile homes, or if available, a large house.  All have with the basics of what you’ll need to be comfortable while working with us, including satellite TV, telephone and wireless internet. 

We provide this accommodation at no cost to locums. Physicians, family practice residents, dentist and pharmacy locums have first priority, as well as medical students.

For the permanent dentist opportunity, we provide a house on the grounds as a part of the benefit package.
