Empowering Healthcare Excellence: Our Commitment to Recruit and Retain Professionals

We recognize the challenges and demands of the healthcare industry, and we are committed to providing the support, resources, and opportunities necessary to attract and retain the best and brightest in the field. Our ongoing initiatives and programs focus on creating an environment where healthcare professionals can thrive, grow, and make a meaningful impact on the lives of our residents.

Investing in the Right Tools

Roseway Hospital’s new digital x-ray machine is up and running. State of the art diagnostic imaging will now be available to all users. This equipment will add to the core services offered locally at Roseway Hospital, supporting you and your family’s health care needs and allowing our health care professionals to do the best job possible.

Establishing a Welcoming Community.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Training – Working with the Black Loyalist Heritage Society we are creating opportunities for appropriate and targeted Equity, Diversity and Inclusion training
sessions to educate our residents and customer service industry to break social and
cultural barriers that exist in rural Nova Scotia. This component of our project is crucial to the successful social integration of new healthcare professionals and their families into our community.

The Municipality of Shelburne is looking to support a diverse group of community members who are interested in establishing a Welcoming and Social Committee to welcome new healthcare professionals to our area.

If you are interested in volunteering for this committee, please send a written expression of interest to robin.smith@municipalityofshelburne.ca.

Engaging Our Next Generation

Engaging medical students to practice in rural areas addresses the shortage of healthcare professionals in remote regions, improving access to quality medical care for residents who might otherwise have limited options. This engagement also allows students to gain diverse clinical experience, enhancing their adaptability and problem-solving skills. Additionally, serving in rural areas fosters a strong sense of community and commitment to patient care, which can lead to long-term retention in these areas. Ultimately, encouraging students to practice medicine in rural settings is a crucial step in achieving more equitable healthcare delivery and improving the overall health and well-being of rural populations.
