The Peterborough Regional Health Centre is a state of the art facility opened in 2008. The hospital is a spa-cious, bright and modern facility that has put a focus on the flow of patients and staff and has been recognized by the media and architectural associa-tions for its innovative design.

We are looking for a 6 month locum Psychiatrist to support our adult inpatient-outpatient practice at our hospital from May—October 2017.

Department of Psychiatry has a 24-bed adult inpatient unit, with full-time social work, occupational therapy, psychology and therapeutic programming.

A 6-bed Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Unit opened in January 2015. This unit pro-vides children and adolescents with serious mental health concerns requiring assess-ment and stabilization access to a local regional service in the Four County Region.

Most recently, a 12-bed Geriatric Assessment Behavioural Unit (GABU) opened, to pro-vide care for older adults with dementia and behavioural disturbances.
