Hospital Recruits 2nd Obstetrician

Smiths Falls, ON – The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital’s recruiting efforts have successfully resulted in the recruitment of a second Obstetrician/Gynaecologist.  Dr. Yan Wang will be joining the Hospital’s medical staff in July 2010.

Dr. Wang recently received her medical degrees from the University of Montreal and Masters Degree in Hospital Pharmacy from the same university after she successfully graduated from Laval University with a Bachelor degree in Pharmacy.  She comes to the Perth and Smiths Falls area from Repentigny, Quebec.  She was born in Beijing, China and is fluent in English, French and Chinese.  Todd Stepanuik, President & CEO says, “She will be a great asset to our organization and this is more good news for the communities that we serve.”   This announcement comes only weeks after the Hospital successfully recruited a 2nd orthopaedic surgeon to the organization.

Dr. Yan Wang cited, “The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital is a state-of-the art hospital, well equipped, with excellent staff.  The impression I received from the hospital, the community and the physicians was very positive.  I very much look forward to working with the staff and the Department of Obstetrics.  A key factor in my decision to move to Smiths Falls is the beautiful landscape of this region and the welcoming environment of the hospital. Having the opportunity to partner with Dr. Kerner will be a great pleasure.  I am looking forward to responding to the needs of the communities and to enjoying a rewarding experience here.”

Clinical Chief of Obstetrics, Dr. Penelope McGregor said, “Dr. Wang is a very welcomed addition to the Obstetrics/Gynaecology Department and it will be a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with her.  I anticipate that she will be an excellent fit. ”

Tim Carter, Chair, Hospital Board of Directors, stated, “This is wonderful news – the hospital is providing great services and those services will be further enhanced with the recent specialist recruitment.”

Dr. Wang will be joining Dr. Cecilia Kerner’s practice located at the Smiths Falls Site of the Hospital in July of this year.  A physician referral will be required to access their services.  With the arrival of Dr. Wang in July, there will be five physicians providing obstetrical services at PSFDH.  The success of the Obstetrical program has always been based on PSFDH offering a high quality service. The program includes full (around-the-clock) epidural service for pain management in labour, excellent physician coverage – who are committed to providing the highest standard of care and one on one nursing in labour and c-section services.  The program has expanded to include a successful centralized prenatal clinic as well.
