Honoring Healthcare Heroes: The Physicians of Guelph General Hospital

At Guelph General Hospital, an extraordinary team of 385 physicians is deeply committed to caring for the community in Guelph and Wellington County. The Chief of Staff, alongside the Family Health Team, community physicians, and physician assistants, take pride in a collaborative work environment that fosters dedication and professionalism.

The physicians at the hospital extend their expertise beyond clinical duties by volunteering, teaching at various universities, and mentoring future medical professionals, ensuring the legacy of excellence in healthcare continues.

Among the hospital’s esteemed staff is Dr. Matthew Brace, a plastic surgeon who has contributed significantly by performing reconstructive surgeries in Ukraine for soldiers and civilians alike. Additionally, Dr. Rhonda Taylor and Dr. Mary Cameron have earned accolades for their educational contributions at McMaster University, receiving the Undergrad and Postgrad Excellence in Teaching Awards, respectively.


Guelph General Hospital has long been integral to the lives of several physicians, including Dr. David Hood, who dedicated four decades to serving the community where he was born and later practiced medicine. His extensive involvement, including roles on the Board of Directors of The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital, underscores his commitment to the institution and its patients.

Recently, the hospital welcomed new leadership in key departments. Dr. Jonathan Cosby now serves as Chief of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Chris Ma as Chief of Laboratory Medicine, and Dr. Ken McKenzie as Chief of Surgery. Their expertise and innovative approaches are crucial as the hospital continues to improve its services.

The hospital also acknowledges the vital roles of dental and midwifery professionals. With 30 midwives holding full privileges and others in training, these professionals are essential to the hospital’s operation, particularly as the International Day of the Midwife approaches.


Despite facing challenges like increased care complexity and staffing issues, the dedication of Guelph General’s physicians to patient care remains unwavering. Their commitment is the foundation of the hospital’s ability to overcome obstacles and continue providing exceptional care.

The Chief of Staff, Dr. Alex Ferguson, expresses deep gratitude to all healthcare professionals at Guelph General Hospital for their service and dedication. Their collective efforts ensure the best possible outcomes for the patients they serve, affirming the hospital’s commitment to health and well-being.
