Office Practice

We are currently recruiting two permanent Family Practice Physicians for the Meaford area Family Health Group. The practice will include Office plus ER and inpatients. Hospital privileges will be at Meaford Hospital.

The position  is required as a result of pending retirements.

We opened our first community medical centre in September 2011 in Thornbury and four family physicians  (two with existing practices and two recruited for the new centre) opened their offices immediately.  All had full rosters within a short period.

In September, 2014, our second new community owned medical centre opened for business in Meaford. The new facility, built through community donations and fund raising, is fully equipped and presents a turnkey operation to new physicians. Overheads, rents and costs for our physicians are much lower than market rates as a result of our funding and nonprofit charitable status.

Currently eight doctors are constituted as a Family Health Group: three family physicians practice in their own offices in Meaford, one practices in our new Don Bumstead & Family Medical Centre and a further four family physicians practice in the Blue Mountains Community Health Centre in Thornbury. The FHG provides 24/7 Emergency Room coverage, in patient care, assists with in hospital procedures and look after two long term nursing care homes. In addition to their family practices noted above, one member is a GP Anesthetist and one is a Board Certified Geriatrician.
