A Message from our Chief of Staff
Pembroke is blessed with a medical staff that is second to none, all with excellent training and a variety of world class backgrounds.
Dr. Michael Ferri, Psychiatrist and Chief of Staff
On behalf, of the Medical Staff at the Pembroke Regional Hospital, I welcome your interest in what we have to offer in terms of a career or training ground.
Our hospital has a rich history dating back to 1878, and over the years we have experienced tremendous growth, and we continue to grow to meet the needs of our region and those in our care.
What attracted my family and I to the area was the hospitality of the people and the beautiful rural location. Located just an hour and a half north-west of Ottawa, the excellent real estate costs and lifestyle opportunities were important factors for my family and I as well.
The hospital’s state-of-the-art surgical and birthing suites, as well as an expanding diagnostic imaging department that now includes MRI have been a real boost in recent years our patients’ experiences, and to be associated with a faith-based hospital which provides care for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of all, has made my professional life as a physician particularly satisfying.
The Pembroke Regional Hospital is also a vibrant teaching centre. Through our affiliation with the University of Ottawa, we have been training residents in family medicine for two-year intervals at our Family Medicine Teaching Unit since 2008.
We also host other medical students and residents for training in all specialties.
Most of our physicians are clinical lecturers and professors affiliated with the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine. Others are certified instructors for courses such as Advanced Trauma Life Support and Paediatric Resuscitation.
I think what is most impressive is that when you look at our professional staff, we not only have a number of experienced physicians who started their practice 30 to 40 years ago and are still practicing, but we also have many new physicians coming to us with more focused training in specialty areas who are able to work well within the organization. They benefit from the experience of their older colleagues and offer the benefits of their recent training.
Many of the physicians within our organization have chosen our hospital because it affords them a broad scope of practice and allows them to spend quality time with the patients they serve.
Our hospital is a great place to work and our community is a great place to raise a family and share in a lifestyle that embodies both nature and nurture.
I hope that you will consider Pembroke Regional Hospital as a place to practice or learn. I invited you to contact our Medical Affairs office to learn more about the types of opportunities we have to offer.
Dr. Michael Ferri
Chief of Staff and Psychiatrist
