Dr. Langille is retiring as physician in Kane

November 26, 2011

Dr. Ken Langille was quite happy practicing medicine as a physician in a small town in his native Nova Scotia, Canada.
This feeling of euphoria came to an unexpected end when the local hospital closed its doors.
Langille had to explore other options to continue to practice medicine.
“I decided to look around and see what’s available,” Langille said.
His search brought him to Kane and the Kane Community Hospital in 1994. He looked at other opportunities in the U.S. before finally deciding on Kane as his new home. He opened his practice in Kane on Oct. 10, 1995.
