Our family of four hospitals play an integral role in improving lives and creating healthier communities. We work together as one team across our hospitals to provide local and regional health care services, and also work in partnership with our communities to improve access to high-quality care, close to home. We are incredibly fulfilled by the work that we do, and proud of our dynamic teams of staff, physicians and volunteers who care deeply about our patients, and each other. We don’t just serve our communities; we are part of them. We live here, raise our families here and, quite often, retire here in the community that we love. Quinte Health is always looking for compassionate, dedicated people to join our team. We have a wide range of exciting roles, some which involve working across more than one of our hospitals, and some which are situated at just one hospital.
