Service Delivery

Working for Eastern Health can mean everything from being at the heart of a vibrant, fast-paced tertiary care centre to providing essential services in a rural setting.

Eastern Health is the centre of tertiary and teaching hospitals for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Hospitals in the capital city, St. John’s, include the full-service St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital and the General Hospital, located within the Health Sciences Complex. The Health Sciences Complex also includes the province’s only children’s hospital (the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre), our provincial cancer program (the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre), and the province’s Faculty of Medicine at Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Work with leaders in technology, especially in the field of clinical communications and distance education.  Our physicians are leaders in telehealth and make use of advances like PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications) and voice-to-text dictation.

If your skills are suited to Mental Health and Addictions, Eastern Health offers the most comprehensive experience possible, ranging from an acute care facility at the Waterford Hospital to numerous community-based services.

Eastern Health also provides opportunities to further advance your career in rehabilitation at the Dr. Leonard A. Miller Centre.

For physicians interested in the rural experience, Eastern Health operates three acute care facilities outside the capital city in Carbonear, Clarenville and Burin. These full-service centres provide vital services and are valued beyond measure to the communities they serve.

Smaller health centres located throughout the region offer emergency and outpatient services.

Eastern Health also operates a number of long-term care facilities throughout the region, many of which are connected to, or affiliated with acute care centers.

As a member of our medical staff you have the opportunity to influence policy and contribute at every level. Our leaders are committed to continuous quality improvement and are dedicated to meeting the needs of the communities we serve. Our Board of Trustees conducts comprehensive community health needs assessments using a population health approach as a means of ensuring that we continuously improve how we deliver health care in Newfoundland and Labrador.
