Dr. Kam Ip is retiring after 42 years with Stephenville Medical & Surgical Clinic.

Dr. Ip graduated with a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Alberta and was then with Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario until 1974. He joined SMSC in 1978 as the clinic broke ground on their new building at 150 River N. Blvd. He has experienced firsthand the many changes in medicine, yet remained constant in his outstanding treatment and care for thousands of patients. Dr. Ip is an avid Tarleton State University fan and you are likely to see him at the TSU Health Center and various sporting events.

The community is invited to join in celebrating and thanking Dr. Ip for his many years of dedicated service at his Retirement Party to be held at the Tarleton Memorial Stadium, Club Suite, third floor on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 2-4 p.m.
