Working Environment

Ross Memorial Hospital is a close-knit community, with a vibrant team atmosphere. Both new staff members and those who have worked at the Hospital for many years say that it’s the people that make all the difference.

People are often drawn to our hospital for our reputation for providing exceptional care, and our beautiful location in the City of Kawartha Lakes.  No matter what the reason for choosing the Ross, our staff members often share that they rewarded by working here, enjoy life in the Kawarthas, and feel privileged to give back to the residents and visitors to the area.

We offer:

Competitive salary and benefits

Our compensation structure is competitive within our local community and when compared with GTA healthcare sector employers. This helps us hire and retain staff locally and to attract new staff to our growing area.

Health and Wellness

We support our team’s wellness, both physically and mentally. That’s why we offer a discounted rate at a local gym, on-site exercise room, a walking group, Employee Assistance Program, and many opportunities to have fun as a team, including holiday meals and outings to sporting/social events.

Awards and Recognition

We offer several opportunities throughout the year to recognize staff and thank them for their hard work. This includes formal awards including Long Service and Excellence Awards, and more informal ways to say ‘thank you,’ including ‘Way to Go’ cards.

Leadership Development and Growth Opportunities

We offer education reimbursement, leadership development and have a keen focus on succession planning. These strategies together mean that we offer growth potential in all departments and care programs.

Referral Program

We often hear that new staff chose to work here on the recommendation of a current staff member. If a current staff member refers a successful candidate for one of our hard-to-fill positions, they’ll receive a bonus on top of their regular pay.

Our People Plan

The RMH People Plan 2019-2021 was created to enable our people (staff, physicians and volunteers) to facilitate the delivery of safe, competent and high quality care now and in the future, so RMH can meet the evolving needs of its community.

We encourage you to read the RMH People Plan 2019-2021.
