Serving Northwestern Ontario

Serving Northwestern Ontario

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre serves Northwestern Ontario from east of White River to the Manitoba border in the west and from Hudson Bay in the north to the United States border in the south.

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre is the only acute care hospital in the City of Thunder Bay and operates one of the busiest emergency departments in Canada and the only one in the City. Ours is also the only tertiary hospital in Northwestern Ontario and a regional referral centre for 10 smaller regional acute care hospitals.

We are a unique region with unique gaps in health care.

Research Will Transform the Future of Health Care

The Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute is distinct. Until very recently, health research facilities of this calibre would be housed in a major metropolitan centre. Our Health Research Institute allows health research to grow in and address the specific needs of a remote and rural environment. Indeed, our scientists found that Thunder Bay’s size and status as a regional hub has tremendous advantages, particularly access to collaborators.

We are able to focus our research to address the health care challenges unique to our region.

We see opportunity to secure funding, to partner with other institutions, to engage clinicians, and to cooperate with Indigenous community leaders to conduct impactful research. With a focus on imaging, discovery science and Indigenous health research, along with a robust clinical trials department, we are delivering on our Mission to be an international leader in health technology research and other strategic health innovations that improve the health of the people of Northwestern Ontario and others.

Academics & Learning

Learners play an important role at our Hospital. We are the teaching hospital of choice for learners from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Lakehead University, Confederation College, and other partnering academic institutions. We are an academic health sciences centre, committed to teaching the next generation of health care providers. Patients benefit from interprofessional teams of health care providers and access to leading-edge medical equipment and clinical trials. Our health care providers have the opportunity to take on teaching positions with our academic partners.

We are proud to provide our learners and health care professionals with education through Simulation Based Learning. Our new Simulation Centre allows practitioners to practice and expand their knowledge and skills within a safe and controlled environment. Simulated scenarios help to better prepare our health care providers to respond effectively and appropriately to stressful situations in clinical practice.

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre supports our employees to enhance their professional development by offering various education opportunities, certificate programs and an annual tuition reimbursement program.
