Bruderheim is getting creative in the effort to attract a doctor to their town.
 
A YouTube video was created by a branch of the Alberta government responsible for helping get doctors to rural Alberta.
 
"It's been a useful tool and there's been a lot of interest generated from it," said Bruderheim mayor, Karl Hauch. "We're quite excited that it will help our community."

The town partnered with two new pharmacists to create a medical office space with exam and waiting rooms. They're also furnishing the rooms.
 
"It's a service that will help folks that may not be able to transport themselves as easily as they'd like to," touted the mayor. "It will be a big benefit for our community, a building block for the future going forward."
 
The nearly five minute video has interviews from mayor Hauch, along with other key figures in the town.
