Family Physician

Our Centre, located in rural Ontario, provides primary health, dental and allied care with a focus on health promotion and illness prevention through an inter-professional team in a collaborative practice model. Our inter-professional team supports populations at all ages and stages of life with an emphasis on those who are high risk and/or experiencing barriers to accessing services.  Our team members have a unique approach to care, engaging in a systems perspective, a focus on community health, and attention to continuous improvement.  We have a passion and commitment for innovation in providing excellent care, while creating an inclusive work environment and fostering our role as partners in creating a vibrant healthy community, where everyone can thrive. We are currently seeking a Family Physician to join our team.

Our team is uniquely comprised of Primary Care Providers, Allied Health Professionals, a Community Health Team, and a Dental Clinic.  Our intention is to provide wrap around services for our patients in our caring community.  We aim to create connections between our patients and health care providers and our community members to encourage professional and peer support networks when needed. Our physicians manage a roster of primary care patients and leverage the expertise of an entire team of health care professionals to deliver excellence in health care.  Our care plans consider the social determinants of health, alongside medical intervention.  We recognize that optimized care comes from a patient-centred approach and each patient has specific health goals and needs, and therefore may need the services of several of our professionals throughout their lives.  Each of our health care professionals uses their full scope of experience and skills to maximize health outcomes.  Electronic medical records and digital tools enhance care and timely communication between our team members. Our staff has seen first-hand that patients are best served when the whole team works together.

Our community is small and welcoming and offers a host of activities and services, that support a healthy work/life balance.   There are plenty of wonderful areas to explore outside of work.  Hastings and Prince Edward  Counties, also known as the Bay of Quinte area, is a favourite of tourists and locals alike. Wineries, breweries, and specialty restaurants have something new to offer every season. Small- town charm and curated shops and services are available in every new village you choose to explore, all just a country drive away.  Local artists, and performers have made this area their home as well, so there is never a shortage of entertainment.   For those who need a regular dose of the big city hustle and bustle, you can be in Toronto or Ottawa in just a couple of hours.   Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake, put in a full day’s work caring for your patients and get to the city in time for a dinner reservation.

We invite you to consider the possibilities of working in a Community Health Centre and living in our growing community. We look forward to meeting you.
