Florenceville-Bristol Secures New Doctor to Run Medical Clinic
The Town of Florenceville-Bristol is excited to announce that Dr. Stuart Lockhart and his wife Maily have agreed to operate the Carleton North Medical Clinic! The Town is absolutely thrilled with the news and cannot wait until the clinic is up and running!
The new 4,000 square foot clinic will offer 8 exam rooms, a procedure room, on-site blood collection, as well as space for visiting health-care providers, family meetings and group education workshops. The building is owned by McGrathco Inc., with the Medical Clinic leasing the space. Town Council agreed to bridge the lease gap for up to five years, while the clinic gets filled with physicians/practitioners. Thanks to funding received from the Carleton North Community Foundation, Florenceville Rotary, Harrison McCain Foundation and the McCain Foundation, medical equipment is being purchased to completely outfit the new space.
More information on when the Medical Clinic will open as well as contact information will be provided once all equipment and systems has been installed in the space.
District of Carleton North residents without a family doctor can register with Patient Connect NB and will be assigned to a doctor on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Patient Connect NB is a provincially managed, bilingual patient registry for New Brunswickers without a family doctor.
Registration on this site also helps determine which communities have a need for additional family doctors, so it is important to be registered to ensure doctor recruitment needs are met in our area.

Following the 2020 Provincial Elections, the province announced they would be launching a Municipal Reform initiative that will review the structure, finances, and services of local government. This is a concept that has been discussed previously within the provincial government as a means of bringing municipalities and Local Service District (LSD) areas together to have their own elected government.
Through the Province's Municipal Reform, the municipalities of Bath, Centreville and Florenceville-Bristol will be amalgamating with the surrounding Local Service Districts (LSDs) of Glassville, Lakeville, Peel, Upper Kent, Wicklow, and Wilmot as well as a portion of the LSDs of Aberdeen, Kent and Simonds. These areas form the Carleton North high school catchment, and that has brought the communities together for the past 45 years. Just like Carleton North High School, the new District of Carleton North will serve and support this entire region on local government matters.
