BROCKVILLE – When a community thinks about their hospital, doctors are the first to come to mind. At Brockville General Hospital, doctors are the heartbeat which ties services and programs together.
Last year at the Hospital over 180 registered doctors provided care to over 8,300 surgical cases, more than 26,300 emergency visits and an excess of over 24,200 diagnostic procedures.
“Our community demands the best of our medical professionals. Doctors work diligently with other medical professionals across the region to provide the continuum of care our patients expect,” shares Dr. David Goldstein, Chief of Staff at BGH. “Within the hospital, teamwork continues to be a core value with the hospital’s clinical and administrative staff. The delivery of safe, quality care to our patients is everyone’s priority.”
Today, communities across the province are celebrating Doctors’ Day by recognizing the significant contributions doctors make to the healthcare system.
“Doctors and nurses across our region ensure patients who are in their most fragile and vulnerable state are receiving high quality patient-centred care,” shared Cynthia Martineau Vice President of Strategy Planning with the South East Local Health Integration Network. “These dedicated health professionals play a vital role in helping to improve the accessibility of health services in the South East.”
According to the Ontario Medical Association, Ontario doctors care for more than 320,000 patients daily. They also conduct research, teach medical students and lead programs to improve the delivery of healthcare.
“Every day, Ontario’s doctors provide care in our hospitals and put patients first whether it be in the operating room, inpatient unit or in an emergency department. On behalf of the profession, I want to personally thank the dedicated and hardworking physicians at Brockville General Hospital that make a positive difference in the lives of their patients and contribute to this vibrant community,” said Dr. Rachel Forman, Ontario Medical Association spokesperson. “Doctors’ Day also gives physicians the opportunity to say thanks to patients for the privilege of caring for them and to the health care community in the Brockville-area for celebrating Doctors’ Day.”
“On behalf of BGH,” says Goldstein, “thank you to the hundreds of doctors who work tirelessly to enhance and improve the healthcare in our community. I am privileged to work with some of the most passionate and committed professionals within our area.”
