Dr. Henriette Strydom & Dr. Arend Delport

When they moved from South Africa to Powell River, Henriette did family practice and maternity and Arend mainly worked in the Emergency Room.

As they settled in and started a family, they felt fortunate to share the family practice to enable one of them to always be with the children. Powell River is perfect for them - there’s more here for them than in most small communities.


The size of Powell River is perfect,we have more here, available,than most communities have.... Powell River is a beautiful place, it is a small town, that has a lot to offer”.

If you want to get away for a weekend, you can do that quiet easily, I mean , I just get on the boat,, and go fishing.
