Job Description
This is an excellent opportunity to step into a well-established, fully computerized and highly organized full-time family practice which is being vacated as the current physician is relocating, midcareer, to another community for family reasons. This practice is well supported within the milieu of a collegial, collaborative and proactive 20-physician Family Health Organization (FHO). Carefully nurtured by the current practitioner over the last 15 years, the practice offers an option to retain 800 to 1300 patients, based on the desired practice size of the applicant, and currently includes optional service provision for up to 75 long-term care patients. The family physician is very well supported by colleagues in maintaining timely patient access to high-quality care through the collective provision of organized Day, Evening and Weekend Clinics, annual flu vaccination clinics, shared access to various Independent Health Professionals including NP’s, MHC’s, dietitian, pharmacist and sessional psychiatry. The practice operates out of a modern suite of offices, including a consult office, two exam rooms, dedicated reception space, a shared waiting room and a shared nurse’s office.
Established in 2005, the Medical Centre Peterborough Family Health Organization (MCFHO) currently includes 20 family physicians who, while maintaining their own independent family practices, work collaboratively to provide seamless and timely access, 7 days per week, to a collective roster of approximately 26,000 patients. The MCFHO also works closely with other local FHO physicians through the Peterborough Family Health Team (PFHT) to access collective centralized programs and to plan the delivery of care to our broader community of patients.
This practice opportunity is located in the Medical Centre at 707 Charlotte St., Peterborough, Ontario, a short walk from the local regional health centre (PRHC). An attractive practice and business opportunity, The Medical Centre is an Association of physicians, 20 family physicians and 16 specialists, who practice within the facility and are co-owners of The Centre. A high quality of patient care is facilitated with the support of a state-of-the-art Electronic Medical Record system (Accuro EMR), PACS and digital imaging technology, on-site Diagnostic Imaging Services, Hearing Services, a clinical pharmacy and lab specimen collection. All physicians practising at the Medical Centre are supported by a team of administrative staff to assist with administrative, human resources, payroll, accounting, health and safety, IT support, legislation compliance, etc.
