Cypress Health Welcomes Two New Specialists Health & Wellness SouthWest Saskatchewan  Cypress Health Region

The Cypress Health Region is welcoming two new specialists to our region, recruiting Dr. Jarrett Nongauza to work in Obstetrics/Gynecology and Psychiatrist Dr. Prasad Venkata.

Dr. Nongauza fills a hole created by a recent departure in the OB/GYN department. The region had been running for some time with only Dr. Naseem Malleck fulfilling those duties.

“It’s hard to be a solo specialist in a community,” said Health Region CEO Beth Vachon. “The fact that she will have somebody that she can practice with and have some collegial support. We’re very pleased that we were able to find a replacement very quickly.”

The addition of Dr. Venkata gets the region to three full time psychiatrists, which Vachon says is important since they provide services to different communities in the southwest.

“It’s important that we have a full complement, because they not only have patients in the hospital, they provide clinic services and they provide rural clinics as well, and do some travelling,” she added. “It will just be a good addition to that team, and it provides some relief to our two psychiatrists, who have been providing all of those services for a while now.”
