Our Mission is to provide high-quality, patient-centred healthcare in collaboration with our partners.

St. Francis Memorial Hospital is a 20 bed, fully accredited facility, offering medical, and complex continuing care. Special inpatient services include palliative care, diabetes clinic, telemedicine and Cardiac Rehabilitation. A two bed Hospice is directly down the hall from our inpatient unit. The hospital has an extensive ambulatory care program with over 10,000 emergency visits per year. A six station satellite hemodialysis unit is located at the St. Francis Memorial Hospital in Barry’s Bay.

SFMH offers comprehensive in-patient, out-patient and telehealth clinics in addition to regional programs such as Addiction Treatment, Diabetes Education, Hemodialysis & Nephrology and Ontario Breast Screening. There is full diagnostic support within the hospital including staff radiologists providing radiological, ultrasound, bone density and mammography support. The hospital is located in the village of Barry’s Bay and serves a catchment of approximately 10,000 population dispersed over a large geographic area.

In 2019, SFMH implemented a new state of the art electronic health information system in collaboration with five regional partners including The Ottawa Hospital, Hawkesbury General Hospital, Renfrew Victoria Hospital, Deep River Hospital, Kemptville District Hospital, Winchester District Hospital and the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, as well as the Ottawa Hospital Academic Family Health Team. As part of the health information system, each health partner has real-time access to patient medical information allowing health-care providers to make timely, informed decisions based on the most comprehensive, and connected information.

SFMH shares Senior Leadership/Administrative roles with Renfrew Victoria Hospital (RVH). RVH has been designated as Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) by RNAO and through these collaborations and integration efforts SFMH also remains on the leading edge of practice. Together, we have implemented many Best Practice Initiatives. We welcome new graduates to our hospital and provide comprehensive orientation and mentorship.

SFMH would not continue to evolve and thrive without the dedication of our entire staff.   At SFMH, we pride ourselves on creating and maintaining an environment where people are family; valued, recognized, and treated with respect.  We do this by providing our employees with competitive and comprehensive benefit plans, a pension program with more than matching employer contribution, professional development opportunities, employee and family assistance program, health and wellness programs (free staff gym onsite) and a learning fund for educational development. Exploring new positions, programs, or development initiatives is encouraged as it contributes to your personal and professional growth.  St. Francis Memorial Hospital offers an education fund that supports staff pursue educational opportunities.

We offer one of Canada's best pension plans:  We are proud to participate in the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP), offering our valued employees the security and peace of mind that comes with a defined benefit pension plan. We understand the importance of financial well-being and believe that a strong pension, like HOOPP, recognizes our employees and provides a stable foundation for their future as part of the overall compensation package. Join us and start building a future you can look forward to.
