Grey Bruce Health Services hosted a virtual celebration today to recognize nine new physicians who have moved to the Grey Bruce area in the past year.
The new group of physicians includes specialists in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pathology, Medical Imaging, Adult Psychiatry, Respirology & Critical Care and Family Practice. These physicians will be working throughout the Grey Bruce region.
“We are pleased to welcome these medical professionals to our team and our region,” said Gary Sims, GBHS President and CEO. “Their training and expertise will help strengthen and support GBHS’s wide range of specialized services, and ensure patients continue to have access to quality healthcare, close to home.”
At the annual event, GBHS also welcomed two new and three returning Family Medicine Residents from McMaster University. The Family Medicine residents complete two years of training with the Owen Sound Family Health Team, with specialty rotations completed across the GBHS family of hospitals.
The corporation’s medical education program supports an average of 20 medical students and residents per month from Universities across Ontario. The program is an excellent way to offer medical students an opportunity to explore the Grey Bruce area, and many return after graduation to practice on a permanent basis or provide short-term coverage at our local hospitals.
Efforts continue to recruit specialists in the following areas: Rural Emergency Medicine, Hospitalist Medicine, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Anesthesiology, Oncology and Surgical Assistants. Family physician recruitment efforts also continue throughout our GBHS communities.
Close to 250 physicians are credentialed to provide services throughout the six GBHS hospitals.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
