Medical Staff

The 180 committed Medical Staff at Seven Oaks General Hospital are skilled medical practitioners with a wide range of expertise. This allows the hospital to offer almost everything medically except pediatrics, childbirth and highly specialized heart, brain and thoracic surgery.

Physicians at Seven Oaks work in:

Family Medicine including family practice, internal medicine, oncology and dialysis

  • Surgery including most sub-specialties
  • Geriatrics in both Day Hospital and in-patient units
  • Mental Health which includes in-patient adult services and one of Canada’s first specialized psychogeriatric programs for elderly patients with psychiatric, cognitive or behavioural  problems
  • Specialty Care (Emergency, Observation, ICU, Recovery Room)

The Medical Staff at Seven Oaks are complemented by family medicine residents in training at the Kildonan Medical Centre, a family medicine clinic, based at the hospital.

Seven Oaks also houses a Surgery Centre for general surgery outpatient visits that will soon also include outpatient Urology visits.

The key to viability as a community hospital is maintaining committed medical staff that have admitting privileges at the hospital. To that end, the management and medical staff work together to identify needs and priorities. In order to keep the relationship productive, the Seven Oaks General Hospital Medical Advisory Committee brings together senior management with the President of the Medical Staff and Heads of various medical departments.
