Quinte Health Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (PECMH) is seeking full-time and part-time family physicians to provide emergency medicine care in in one of Ontario’s most beautiful communities!
Physicians, at PECMH, will enjoy comprehensive medicine in a rural setting. The PECMH 24-hour Emergency Department has over 13,200 visits annually and there are 18 inpatient beds. The team includes highly trained and skilled nurses and support staff. ER mentorship with senior physicians is available and ER work is paid through an AFP. Local physicians provide 24-hour back-up to the emergency room. PECMH also has specialty clinics and an endoscopy suite. Plans for a new hospital are underway.
PECMH is supported by a secondary level hospital in Belleville, approximately 30 minutes away. Belleville General Hospital offers access to an MRI and CT scanner and 24-hour support from internal medicine, intensive care, general surgery, orthopaedics, urology, pediatrics, anesthesia, obstetrics and gynaecology, psychiatry, otolaryngology, and radiology. Tertiary care centres are located in Kingston, Toronto and Oshawa.
We are looking for family physicians skilled in providing emergency medicine in a rural site. Physicians must have a valid license from CPSO or be eligible for independent licensure in Ontario. Applicants must be current with ACLS. Return of service is available. Supervision may be available.
Physicians can do emergency medicine only or opportunities exist to combine their practice with family medicine in the community. There are many flexible options to explore.
There is also a strong educational component to the department with most physicians hosting residents on a regular basis, usually through affiliations with Queen’s University.
