Providence Care plays an integral role in the health-care system, taking over where acute care hospitals leave off. We care for patients coping with cancer, requiring rehabilitation services or longer-term care or who are experiencing mental illness with a focus on quality of life for our patients.

A 654-bed multi-site health care provider, with an operating budget of more than $113.5 million and over 1,700 staff, Providence Care delivers holistic care to patients as they progress through different stages of healing, and make the transition from hospital to their homes or other community settings.

Serving patients in Kingston and surrounding region, Providence Care delivers care through numerous community locations and three main sites:

• St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital in Kingston: Physical medicine and rehabilitation, specialized geriatrics, complex continuing care, respite and palliative care

• Mental Health Services in Kingston: Specialized adult treatment and rehabilitation services with a focus on mood and personality disorder and schizophrenia, geriatric psychiatry services and regional forensic services

• Providence Manor in Kingston: Long-term and respite care, Day Centre, Day Away Program, Attendant Care Outreach program and supported living program 

Make the Difference

Over 150 physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers and speech language pathologists work in all areas of care at Providence Care. Employment begins with our New Employee Welcome providing orientation to the organization followed by ongoing, hands-on practical training designed and customized to suit the individual needs of the incumbent based on their experience.

Providence Care allied health professionals enjoy a diversity of challenges that come from working in the different areas of care, and with a range of inpatients, outpatients and clients living in the community. As our staff hone their skills and expertise, there are many career development opportunities such as professional practice leader, team coordinator/manager, case manager or applications co-ordinator.

Supporting Growth and Skill Enhancement

Supporting the professional development of its staff, Providence Care offers numerous free and ongoing internal workshops, seminars and courses that cover a diverse range of technical, management, leadership and teamwork skills. The Providence Care Foundation helps fund external training and education opportunities for staff through bursaries.

Staff also have the opportunity to learn through Providence Care’s strong affiliation with Queen’s University and St. Lawrence College. Our regulated professionals can act as designated preceptors to students studying in their discipline throughout the year, and may also formally or informally mentor or teach students.

Contributing to Excellence

The input of our front line clinicians is critical to refining and enhancing professional practice at Providence Care. Staff share their insights and contribute to the development of related best practice models through a wide range of hospital committees and working groups, such as professional councils, Recovery Model Working Group, joint planning educational committees and continuous quality improvement committees.

Staff may be involved in various continuous quality improvement, program evaluation, and research activities including studies to evaluate effectiveness/efficacy of therapy interventions, validate new therapy tools, drug studies, and studies of outcomes following care including client satisfaction.

Make a Meaningful Impact on Patients’ Lives

You will be afforded the opportunity to practice non-acute care that is value driven and focused on quality patient centred care in which patients receive care for weeks, months or years. Our staff build meaningful relationships with patients and their families. As a member of an inter-disciplinary team, our staff work with team members to address each patient’s emotional, physical, spiritual and social needs and provide input to the development of comprehensive treatment plans.
