A letter from Dr. Murdo Ferguson

Over the last 26 years, there has been a transformation in both the delivery of healthcare and in Millbrook itself. When I first began my career with Millbrook in 1994, I was working in the emergency department of the old Colchester Regional Hospital. While doing a shift, I met Elizabeth Berube, a nurse from Cape Breton. She asked if I would consider working in Millbrook as a doctor. After meeting Chief Lawrence Paul, Alex Cope, Barry Martin and Barry Gloade, we agreed that I would come and work in Millbrook. At that time, the Health Centre was located in the current Youth Centre on Willow Street. It was freezing in the winter and roasting hot in the summer! After a few years, the staff were excited when air conditioning units were installed in some of the windows!

Dr Murdo Ferguson Resigns

Dr. Murdo Ferguson has submitted his letter of resignation as Millbrook’s family physician and his last day of work in Millbrook is May 7.  We are working with the province to find another family doctor to replace him.  This, however, could take long as there are very few doctors to fill vacancies.  We are also planning a retirement party for Murdo, who has been with Millbrook for 26 years.  More information on that and his replacement will be shared with the community when available.
