Dr. Georgina Chalker

Dr. G. Chaulker

Georgina Chalker was born at Notre Dame Bay Memorial Hospital on September 5, 1944, delivered by Dr. J.M. Olds. She moved to St. John’s where she was educated at Bishop Spencer College and Bishops College. During the summer seasons, Georgina visited Twillingate and hoped she would someday return to Twillingate as a medical doctor.

Georgina was awarded a BSc, MD in 1968 from Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario and in 1975 was received as a Fellow in the Royal College of Surgeons, Canada.

On July 1, 1976, Dr. Chalker came to Twillingate where she worked with Dr. J.M. Olds for approximately 4 years until his retirement from surgery. During her stay, Dr. Chalker focused mainly on general practice, general surgery, and obstetrics.

With the regionalization of Twillingate Hospital in 1994, Dr. Chalker moved to G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital in Clarenville.

Although she officially retired in 1999, Dr. Chalker continued her medical service by doing locums at Twillingate until 2006.
