In Wingham we want to welcome physicians not only to our hospital and Family Health team, we want to welcome your families into our community.


As an underserviced area, Wingham qualifies for the HFO NRRR underserviced area program.  New physicians coming to Wingham enjoy an incentive of $89 000 through this program.  Beginning in April 2013, newly graduated physicians are also elegible for a portion of Canada Student Load forgiveness when they commit to rural practice in Wingham.


The community of Wingham offers many incentives to physicians and their families.  One year family membership to the North Huron Recreation Centre, one year basic dental care, one year membership at the Wingham Golf & Curling Club, one year registration for minor hockey and baseball.  These are just a few examples of how we want physicians and their families to get to know our friendly town.
