Registered Nurses (RN) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPN)

The Registered Nurse and/or Registered Practical Nurse works together with primary health care providers in the provision of primary care for patients.  At the Maitland Valley FHT, Nurses work directly with the primary health care provider to provide health assessments, treatment and management of disease, education and advocacy, and collaboration with other health professional agencies.

Residents & Medical Students

The Maitland Valley Medical Centre is a teaching centre for the University Of Western Ontario School Of Medicine and collaborates with Medical Training Programs from other Universities. The Family Health Team of the Maitland Valley Medical Centre is committed to providing rural based medical education to 3rd and 4th year medical students and family practice residents. While receiving health care in clinic, you may receive care from one of the Medical Residents. We appreciate your continuing support as a patient of this program. They provide another source of service and sometimes the latest insights in Healthcare. Many resident Physicians have expressed highly positive feedback about their experiences in Goderich and this can lead to future physicians locating in the area. 



Referrals to any of the above allied health professionals can be made through your Physician or Nurse Practitioner.  If you would like to refer yourself to any of these professionals, please contact them directly to discuss the reasons pertaining to the referral.


Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratory

The laboratory services at the Maitland Valley Medical Centre are provided by Gamma-Dynacare, one of the largest medical laboratory services in Ontario.  Its parent company, LabCorp, is the second largest laboratory in North America and has the largest genetic focus in the world.  The MVMC lab is a collection site for Gamma-Dynacare, with collections couriered to the London testing facility twice daily (except Wednesdays and Fridays – shipped once per day).  Testing results are downloaded to doctors’ offices as soon as the testing results are finalized.   

Our lab technicians, ensure timely, accurate and customized delivery of numerous lab services necessary for good health care and health-related decisions.  They are very proud of the secure, reliable services they provide to meet patient needs… with a smile.  Please note that the lab technicians are not responsible for communicating testing results to patients.  Legally, only a primary care provider (physician, nurse practitioner or nurse) can communicate testing results.
