If your answer to any of these questions is "yes", then Quinte West may be just the right place for you to put down roots.

Consider Quinte West

Here are some compelling reasons to consider Quinte West:

  • A vibrant, growing city, just 1.5 hours east of Toronto, with affordable housing and desirable neighbourhoods
  • Great boating, fishing, golf, hiking, biking, wineries, jazz, theatre, country inns -- all in spectacular natural surroundings and all at your doorstep
  • An excellent opportunity to work as part of a family health team in the new Quinte West Medical Centre, a modern turnkey operation located adjacent to the Trenton Memorial Hospital

Our Commitment to You

With offices administered by the Quinte West Medical Centre, you can focus on providing quality health care, not running a business. In return for a five-year commitment to practice, qualified medical graduates are eligible for a financial support package of $100,000, plus other incentives. Under the terms of the program, new family doctors will receive $20,000/year for five years (total of $100,000) upon signing an agreement to operate their family medical practice in the Quinte West Medical Centre.

Our commitment to personal attention will make you feel truly welcome in Quinte West.

Interested? It's all here -- except for you.

Short of nothing except a few more more doctors

Quinte West Medical Centre and the Brighton Quinte West Family Health Team

QWMCThe Brighton Quinte West site in Quinte West is located at the Quinte West Medical Centre, conveniently located adjacent to the Trenton site of Quinte Health Care.

The Quinte West Medical Centre was established by a group of dedicated citizens to ensure office space for new primary care physicians relocating to the community. The Centre was generously funded by the City of Quinte West, the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Rotary Club of Trenton.

In the fall of 2007, the physicians became affiliated with the Brighton Family Health Team in order to provide their patients with a more comprehensive, collaborative approach to patient care.

This move ensured a multidisciplinary team with a variety of other health care providers such as nurse practitioners, dietitians, social workers, mental health workers, nurses, nurse educators and other physicians with a variety of expertise in the primary health care field.

There are presently three physicians at Quinte West who work in concert with two physicians in Brighton -- 20 kms. to the west.

We are a fully computerized facility with an electronic medical record which allows all physicians to access each others' medical records. This is valuable when a physician is on call for the group.

The physicians are members of the funding model - A Family Health Organization and pay a set percentage of their FHO income in order to have a turnkey operation.

The QWMC is currently looking for and recruiting additional family doctors.
