Ross Memorial Hospital - Kawartha Lakes
page title bg2 images


Physicians who have located here within the past few years have experienced the ease with which it is possible to establish a successful practise within a very short time. Our communities are small enough to make information gathering and networking a straightforward exercise, and sophisticated enough to understand the needs of professionals.

As well as two after-hours clinics in Lindsay, and an urgent care centre in Minden, there are medical clinics located throughout the area in Woodville, Kinmount, Kirkfield, Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon and Coboconk.

"I chose Lindsay because I wanted to be close to Toronto, yet live and work outside the big city."
- Dr. David P. Lane, Ophthalmologist

"We really appreciate the small town spirit of the sports teams that our kids have become involved with."
- Dr. Bruno Helt, Emergency Physician

"This is a great place to live. My husband and I are both very active, and we really appreciate all there is available at the recreation complex in Lindsay. For people like us who are interested in the outdoors, there are so many opportunities for outdoor activities."
- Dr. Naomi Ecob, Family Medicine, Paediatrics and Obstetrics

"The City of Kawartha Lakes is a safe, friendly community with all the amenities most people need. The proximity to cottage country is a real plus, as is the easy access to Toronto."
- Dr. Paul Hacker, G.P./Anaesthetist

"In this community, I have the opportunity to really get to know my patients, their families and their role within the community."
- Dr. Kristine Roberts, Family Medicine, Paediatrics and Obstetrics

"The staff at the Ross is dedicated and competent. We work well as a team and every member of the clinical team plays an important role in patient management."
- Dr. Paul Hacker, G.P./Anaesthetist

"Ross Memorial Hospital has a great working environment. There are many surgeons and physicians here who have a wealth of experience and as a young doctor just coming in, I am able to draw on that talent. I am very lucky to have that opportunity so early on in my career."
- Dr. Jamie McNabb, General Surgeon

"I was made to feel so welcomed by Hospital staff. The Hospital is a vital part of my practise. The great diversity of scope makes it possible to have a very interesting practise."
- Dr. Naomi Ecob, Family Medicine, Paediatrics and Obstetrics

"There is a diversity of opportunities to practise medicine here between ER shifts, OR assists, the walk-in clinic, and locums."
- Dr. Bruno Helt, Emergency Physician

"The advantage of practising medicine here is that you are able to look after your own patients as well as practise in the ER, OBS, assist in the OR plus in the nursing home. The medical staff at Ross Memorial Hospital are very supportive of one another and provide excellent care to their patients."
- Dr. Peter Anderson, Past Chief of Family Medicine
