Dr. DANA RICH

Dr. DANA RICH

I grew up in Surrey, BC but moved to Montreal to complete a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at McGill University. I then attended medical school at the University of British Columbia Vancouver campus. After graduating from medical school in 2017, I moved to Edmonton where I completed my Family Medicine Residency at the University of Alberta. 

During my residency I was fortunate enough to spend two months working in Sundre at Greenwood Family Physicians and Sundre Hospital, and I fell in love with the town and the people. I’m incredibly excited to be locuming at Greenwood starting July 2019!  When I’m not at work, I enjoy travelling, running, hiking, and spending time with family and friends. 

Dr. Carol Rowntree

Dr Rowntree first came to Sundre as a University of Calgary medical student in 1984 to work with Dr Hal Irvine. She enjoyed the community so much that she returned after completing her Family Medicine residency at the University of Alberta in 1989.  Although she semi-retired from her practice 5 years ago she still very much enjoys filling in as a locum at Greenwood Family Physicians when one of the other doctors is away.  Carol and her husband Steve were both born and raised in the County of Mountain View and still love living in Sundre when they are not traveling and spending time in the mountains.
