We at the Greater Hamilton Health Network (GHHN) Physician Recruitment Department, recruit and support family physicians in our quest to ensure that all citizens have access to superior primary care. With a thorough understanding of the existing family practices in Hamilton, the medical community, different payment models and the many steps involved in succession planning, we take pride in understanding the physician’s professional goals and practice style to ensure the right practice and fit.
