Campbell River Hearing Clinic Has a New Associate

Martin Jurek, Campbell River Hearing Clinic

We have some great news that we want to share! We were hoping the newspaper would share our enthusiasm and print an article about it, but hospital construction and big hydro developments are more newsworthy than big changes at a little hearing clinic. Thus, we’re paying to have this exciting news announced in the paper and we are finally posting it here.

Campbell River Hearing Clinic has taken the concept of “family business” to a whole new level.

Jana and I, are excited to welcome Jana’s sister and fellow Hearing Instrument Practitioner Renata Bartova to our practice. Despite the unpalatable reality of now facing a united voting block with every new decision, from where to go for lunch to how best to torment the odd man out, I am nonetheless convinced the move will benefit the people of Campbell River.

While it’s true she’s my wife’s sister and neither of them are shy when it comes to sharing their opinions with me, Renata’s arrival is really going to help us continue to meet the growing demand for professional hearing care in Campbell River. In all seriousness, Jana and I are extremely fortunate to have someone who enjoys working with people as much as Renata does; her friendliness and enthusiasm fit right in with our team.

Renata and her husband Pavel, an artist and graphic designer, moved with their youngest son to Campbell River from North Vancouver earlier this year. They’re excited to be on the Island, both to enjoy the wonderful area and to be closer to family once again.

“We moved to Canada in 1997 after having visited Martin and Jana when they lived in 100 Mile House,” says Renata, who grew up in the Czech Republic and became a Certified Hearing Instrument Practitioner in 2006. “I actually did my practicum with Martin and Jana back then so I knew joining their clinic would be a good fit. It’s great to be back working with, and living near, them.”

We are also thrilled to have Renata on our team.

She’ll only add to our reputation of friendly, caring service. The down side, of course, is that the sisters like to sometimes gang up on me. I might have to commission one of Pavel’s award-winning sculptures for the office just to even things out a bit!

We are located at Unit D - 780 13th Avenue in Campbell River. To make an appointment with Renata or Martin, call 250-914-3200.
