New Medical Team Member

Welcome to the newest member of our medical team, Darwin La Hue. He is a Family Nurse Practitioner through our Primary Care Network (PCN) and will be working to provide care to our patients at Drumheller Associated Physicians. Read further to get to know more about Darwin and make sure to say hi if you see him in the office! For more information on the role of a Nurse Practitioner, click the link below:
“I am originally from Vancouver, BC but moved to Calgary, after completing a Masters of Biomedical Physiology through SFU, to start the University of Calgary Nursing program. I focused the next eight years of nursing on the treatment and management of acute and chronic health concerns of patients within the community and hospital setting. In 2021, I graduated from the University of Regina with a Masters of Nursing and a Family Nurse Practitioner designation.
During my FNP studies I focused on rural family medicine, studying under rural doctors and nurse practitioners in central Alberta. It’s through this experience I realized my passion for chronic pain management, emergency medicine, and working with patients to meet their health goals.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring the wonders of Alberta. I also enjoy playing music, gaming, seeing the arts, and traveling.
I look forward to fill the primary care needs of the residents in Drumheller and surrounding area.”

Sept. 30, 2021 National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Today is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is a day to honor the survivors of residential schools and their families and communities. Big Country PCN and Drumheller Associated Physicians recognize the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools and the impact these schools have had to Indigenous communities for generations. We invite all members of our community to not only to wear an orange shirt but to also use this day to learn and reflect on Canada’s history with Indigenous peoples.

If you or someone you know is struggling or needs someone to talk to, talk to your family doctor. Or call the Mental Health Helpline 1-877-303-2642 or the National Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line 1-866-925-4419. The helplines are confidential, anonymous and available 24/7.
