The North Shore Family Health team represents 5 communities at the top of Lake Superior (Ontario). It includes 2 clinics - one in Terrace Bay and one in Schreiber. Each clinic staffs 2 full time physicians and share a nurse practioner, dietician, social worker/mental health worker and diabetes nurse. The McCausland Hospital is a 45 bed hospital (10 acute, 13 chronic and 22 LTC) accredited facility in Terrace Bay. It serves a catchment area of approximately 3,000
Our Emergency Department is unique in the north in that it's not usually overly busy! Physicians can take call from the clinic, home or outside the hospital with our excellent nursing staff providing triage service. In an average 24 hr period, the on-call physician can expect 5-10 patients a day.
We encourage and welcome new grad to apply for locum positions. There is always a second on call physician for support/questions. We have several one week locum positions available in August and all fall into the winter to cover a physician medical leave- most starting and ending on Wednesdays.
We pride ourselves in treating our physicians and healthcare providers well! Locuming in a rural community is a great way to experience a wide scope of practice - you never know what will come through the doors!
Terrace Bay is located on the North shore of Lake Superior east of Thunder Bay on Highway 17. The name originates from a series of lake terraces formed as the water level in Lake Superior lowered following the latest ice age.
Terrace Bay originated as a company town in the 1940's when a pulp and paper mill was established here. The municipality carried out a growth plan in 2010/11 including the downtown revitalization plan, the cultural centre, rebranding based on Lake Superior and the Terrace Bay Lighthouse attraction was built.
While locuming in Terrace Bay or Schreiber, we will ensure you have spare time to experience one of the must see Superior Six attractions!
