Medical Program

Humber River prides itself on providing a broad spectrum of speciality services to our adult patient population. With over 300 acute care beds across two sites, including critical care services with 28 beds, HRH’s medical program is a dynamic, highly specialized clinical program committed to the quality of patient care. Our interdisciplinary teams work closely together to build on our proud history of patient care excellence and dedication to being a leader in regional health.

We participate in leading-edge cardiology clinical trials for the treatment of Acute Myocardial Infarction and are proud to partner with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre to offer the very best in emergency cardiac care through our Code Stemi Program.

We also have a well established Cancer Care centre; a large Chemotherapy Clinic and participate actively in clinical trials for new chemotherapy treatments. Humber River was the first community hospital to participate in these clinical trials. Our interdisciplinary cancer team provides a full range of support to both inpatients and outpatients.

Our Endoscopy Program is one of the finest in the province; and was Ontario’s first community hospital to use an ultrasonic gastro fiberscope to diagnose and treat cancer of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas and colon. Dr. Ted Ptak, an HRH gastroenterologist, first introduced the procedure to the hospital; has championed its introduction to hospitals province-wide and lectured on the subject internationally.

Humber River is proud of its stroke Prevention Clinic which provides patient care and consultation. The clinic is serviced by a certified nurse practitioner and meets the growing needs of patients seeking care in this area.
