Blue Coast Primary Care - Recruitment & Retention (Formerly the Physician Recruitment Taskforce of Sarnia Lambton) was formed to combat the severe shortage of Family Physicians in the Sarnia Lambton Area.
Since its inception in 2001, Blue Coast Primary Care has recruited 35 Family Physicians and assisted with the recruitment of many specialists.
We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to marketing Sarnia Lambton to prospective Family Physicians and their families. We do this by attending medical recruitment fairs both in the US and in Canada, by promoting our opportunities online, by networking with other physician recruitment organizations and by establishing relationships with key medical resources such as the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Ontario, the Ministry of Health & Long Term Care and the Ontario Medical Association to name a few.
The mission: With the support of strong community relationships, we undertake initiatives to meet the primary healthcare needs of Lambton County and thereby enhancing the health, social, and economic quality of life for all our residents.
The vision: All Lambton County residents will have accessible and high-quality Primary Health Care.
