The Belleville General Hospital Maternal Child Unit has a 6 (up to 8) bed pediatric unit, a Level 2A NICU, and ~1500 deliveries per year, staffed in a hospitalist model by a dynamic and supportive group of paediatricians, committed to optimizing both clinical experience and lifestyle for each other and patients!
This group is funded through a Regional Consulting Paediatric APP model (base stipend plus percentage of billings) and has a fully operational outpatient clinic space which uses an EMR. The paediatric clinic is a shared space Consultant based practice with eight clinic rooms, located conveniently across the street from Belleville General Hospital. We provide consultative care for a wide range of general pediatric conditions, and also operate an urgent consultation clinic. We also provide limited follow up care for some patients discharged from the NICU/paediatric ward.
In addition, some of our Paediatricians provide consultative care, though a multi-disciplinary team approach, to Quinte Children’s Treatment Centre and the Regional Paediatric Diabetes clinic, offering opportunity for a wide scope and varied clinical practice.
Our hospital services are provided at QHC Belleville General Hospital, though we also provide support to other QHC hospital locations including: QHC North Hastings Hospital, QHC Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital, and QHC Trenton Memorial Hospital.
Our local tertiary care facility is Kingston General Hospital, which is located only 45 minutes away and provides excellent support with subspecialty advice easily accessible by phone and as our regional site for NICU and step down pediatrics with CHEO as our PICU referral site.
All Paediatricians hold academic appointments with Queen’s University and have the opportunity to regularly participate in Queen’s resident and medical student training.
