An immediate need exists to increase the physician complement to two full-time Neurologists as part of a vibrant community practice including daily consultations to the ER, in-patient and out-patient work.
This hospital is a Designated Stroke Centre serving a catchment of over 170,000 residents and more than 2 million short-stay visitors each year.
Total ER stroke cases have already increased 17% from last year and will continue to rise as more stroke patients are diverted here for care. The Stroke Prevention Clinic has seen a 31% rise in appointments over the past year and the wait list for out-patient referrals is now up to one year.
Presently, after-hours and weekend call is covered by the Internal Medicine group. There is an Intensivist supported 6-bed closed ICU, a strong Hospitalist program and a well-resourced 16-bed rehabilitation unit. The Stroke Unit is supported by a full interprofessional team (NP, OT, PT, SLP, SW, RD, CCAC care coordinator) that rounds daily. The hospital is also a participating organization with the Provincial Telestroke program.
With annual ER volumes of over 90,000, 24-hour labs, excellent specialty back-up, and comprehensive diagnostic imaging (CT, MRI, PACS capability, video-EEG), this modern facility is very well equipped.
The hospital has office space available for rent.
