Physician Recruitment

Message from the Chief of Staff:

Dr. Vikram Ralhan, Chief of StaffI joined GBGH in 2010 as a physician in the Emergency department (ED) and since that time, I’ve had the opportunity to witness significant change in our hospital. This includes a complete redevelopment of the ED, growth in credentialed staff and specialties, an expansion of the surgical program with a focus on optimization, a transformation to a learning organization and countless quality improvement initiatives to improve the health of the communities we serve.

GBGH is replete with talented, skilled physicians and staff who live our organization’s values of Respect, Accountability, Excellence and Compassion every day. This hospital is committed to providing Exceptional Care, Every Person, Every Time and is continuing to seek physicians who will contribute to fulfilling this vision.

Through my role as the Site Liaison for the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, I have developed a passion for bringing future physicians to our hospital. This passion for recruitment extends to physicians at all stages in their careers.

GBGH is situated in an incredible area of the province – with a wide variety of recreation opportunities and a small town atmosphere only a short distance from major centres like Toronto. I have never looked back since choosing GBGH and the southeastern Georgian Bay area to establish my career and my family. I encourage you to consider doing the same.
