Information and Benefits of Happy-Valley Goose Bay

St. Anthony

We are looking for a general surgeon of good character and careful judgment, kindness, energy, dedication, compassion, determination and common-sense to join our team.  The successful candidate should possess skills in both open and laparoscopic general surgery, endoscopy, and critical care.  Experience in urology, plastics, and interventional radiology is a bonus.   

There is the opportunity to choose between a salary and a fee-for-service arrangement, and there are allowances for moving and licensing expenses and retention bonus.  Accommodation in hospital owned apartments or houses is available at the going rental rates.

Labrador-Grenfell Health provides medical services to nearly 40,000 people spread over more than 300,000 sq Km from the Lower North Shore of Quebec, through the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland to all of the Labrador.  For more than a century the hospital in St Anthony at the northernmost tip of Newfoundland has been a centre of excellence providing surgical care to the people of this vast region.

The Charles S. Curtis Memorial hospital provides well-equipped operating rooms, abundant operating time, excellent Anesthesia services, state of the art endoscopy facilities, ICU, a 64 slice CT scanner, digital radiology, friendly, dedicated and highly skilled nurses, allied health professionals and delightful patients.  There is a well-staffed Family Medicine Department, and specialists in Obstetrics/Gynecology, Orthopaedics, ENT, Internal Medicine, Paediatrics and Pathology.  The full service radiology Department in St John’s, the only tertiary care centre in the Province, provides a rapid and reliable tele-radiology service.  Because we are situated 1100 Km from the nearest referral centre and patients are often reluctant to travel there we do more interesting cases here than do most other small hospitals in the country. 

Ours is a rugged and breathtakingly beautiful part of the world where opportunities for outdoor adventure abound.  Wildlife includes moose, caribou, fox, coyote, whale, seal and polar bears, and the region is home to some of the world’s most famous salmon rivers. The summers are sunny and moderately warm but locals regard winter as the best time of the year with skiing, hockey, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing and visiting some of the most popular activities. Our community is sociable, safe, friendly, clean and we are proud to be associated with it.
