North East Grey Community Family Health Centres
Our Recruitment Program

For the Municipalities of Meaford and The Blue Mountains

The municipalities of Meaford and The Blue Mountains are working together to bring Family Physicians to this outstanding area of Ontario, located two hours northwest of Toronto, 10 minutes from the ski hills of the Blue Mountains and on the shores of Georgian Bay.

Our communities, through a Community Board, are funding Physician Recruitment with financial incentives to Family Physicians moving to the area.  The granting of these incentives is based on length of commitment, and the breadth of services delivered in the clinic, at the Hospital in Meaford, including inpatient and emergency care, and within the community as a whole. Please contact North East Grey Health Clinics Board to discuss the incentives available, via email to nancy.allendorf@gmail.com

We are currently recruiting for two Family Physicians to join our existing Family Health Group with hospital privileges in the Meaford Hospital, a facility of Grey Bruce Health Services. The new physicians are sought for the Don Bumstead & Family Medical Centre in Meaford.

In addition to our recruitment incentives, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has approved Meaford as an eligible community for the Northern and Rural Recruitment and Retention (NRRR) Initiative that offers taxable financial incentives to each eligible physician who establishes a full-time practice here. The grants are approximately $81,000 paid over a four year period.

Further, the GBHS and Meaford Hospital offer financial relocation assistance to new Family Physicians who establish practices within the community. Please contact Physician Recruitment, Academic Affairs & Owen Sound ED Support at www.gbhs.on.ca

If you are a Medical Student or a Family Medicine Resident in Ontario, we encourage you to consider our area for an elective opportunity during your program.  You may arrange for this experience through the Rural Ontario Medical Program at www.romponline.com or The Southwestern Ontario Medical Education Network at http://www.schulich.uwo.ca/swomen

Please feel free to contact us if you are interested and would like more information about this exceptional practice opportunity:
