We are seeking a full-time General Cardiologist to join our team at Royal Inland Hospital. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a unique niche setting and practice great medicine with lots of support. RIH sees over 1,500 patients in our emergency with cardiac related conditions. Our cardiac rehab clinic and heart function clinic offer hospital based out-patient services. Physician Services provides a full in-patient admitting and consultative service including Holter monitoring, ECGs and loop recording service, heart function clinic, exercise stress testing, nuclear medicine support, cardiac CT and MRI support. Royal Inland Hospital has a full service echo lab performing TTE, TEE, exercise stress echo and dobutamine stress echo. The RACE and Pacemaker clinics operates in the new state of the art Clinical Services Building at RIH which opened in December 2016. The four bed CCU was opened in 2019.
