Service Delivery

Our Department of Medicine has an immediate permanent full-time opportunity to increase our physician complement of Neurologists. This is a community practice opportunity, which includes daily consultations to the ER, in-patient and out-patient work.

The Owen Sound Hospital is considered a Designated Stroke Centre. With this designation, all stroke patients in Grey and Bruce counties are treated in Owen Sound, including patients from Hanover District Hospital and South Bruce Grey Health Centre hospitals. We serve a catchment of over 170,000 residents and more than 2 million short-stay visitors each 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. We are also a participating organization with the Provincial Telestroke program.
