We have wonderful community partners who assist our work with offers of gifts-in-kind to new or visiting potential physicians such as a membership to their facilities and some who financially help sponsor specific recruitment events or appreciation events for our physicians. if you wish to to become involved, please see our contact page.
The City of Cambridge has gone well beyond its mandate to provide continued support to the doctor recruitment efforts. The City provides a generous annual grant to the committee which allows us to hire a part-time recruitment co-ordinator, market the community through advertisements and recruitment fairs, and accommodate the 30 – 50 annual visits of touring doctors. Cambridge also had the vision to provide the recruitment committee with a one-time grant of $250,000 to start its own not-for-profit medical clinic. Cambridge Health Link, located at 350 Conestoga Blvd. is the direct result of this grant.
The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce is one of the Founding Partners of the recruitment efforts. The Chamber also provides in-kind support for the committee through meeting room space, financial management, and general office assistance.
Our success would not be complete without the partnership with Cambridge Memorial Hospital. The hospital provides annual grants and assists the committee when a doctor is touring Cambridge. Staff at the hospital have been involved in many of our recruitment activities.
Actively involved with doctor recruitment as one of the Founding Partners. Langs also has assisted the committee in many regards over the past year and provides an annual grant to the committee. LFVA is also the home of the Langs Farm Community Health Centre.
