Physiatrist, General Internists, Family Physicians
Build your career…at the hospital that’s built for the future
Humber River Hospital (HRH), North America’s first digital hospital and one of Canada’s largest acute care community hospitals, is a healthcare setting like no other. Supported by cutting edge technology and a recognized leader provincially, nationally and internationally for its excellence and innovation in patient care, HRH is fueled by a strong and professional workforce committed to compassionate, quality and reliable healthcare that puts patients, their families and their needs at the centre of all they do. Humber River is affiliated with the University of Toronto and Queen’s University.
At Humber River Hospital we continue to advance the important role we play as we advocate for healthcare initiatives in the diverse community we serve. In December 2017, the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), in partnership with Humber River Hospital, North York General Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, Mackenzie Health and Markham Stouffville Hospital, launched an integrated, innovative model of care delivery called the Reactivation Care Centre (RCC) – A Central LHIN Hospitals Collaborative. The RCC is located in the former Humber River Hospital Finch site, which was extensively renovated for this new shared facility.
This first-of-its-kind collaboration brings five hospitals under one roof to provide specialized care for patients who no longer require acute care, but are waiting in hospital for transfer to an appropriate alternate discharge destination such as convalescent, slow stream rehabilitation, or long-term care. Each of the hospitals has its own unit which is staffed and operated as an extension of its hospital. Humber River Hospital operates one 32-bed patient care unit.
Planning is currently underway for the opening of the second Reactivation Care Centre in the Church site of Humber River Hospital that will include a 34-bed patient care unit. This program, along with our focus on comprehensive inpatient and ambulatory senior’s care, provides an exciting opportunity for physicians interested in working with this patient population.
This position would also include cross-appointment to our Wilson site where our inpatient and ambulatory senior’s program is based.
