North Cumberland Memorial Hospital is nestled in the beautiful little waterside village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia. A village that is “world famous for peace”, it is home to Pugwash Harbourfest, and the Nobel Peace Prize winning Thinkers Lodge. We are surrounded by 3 beautiful golf courses, including world-class Fox Harb’r Resort, Nova Scotia's oldest winery Jost Vineyards, and some of the most beautiful beaches on the Northumberland Strait.
This rural community hospital offers variety to any provider with primary care, urgent care, ambulatory care services, a small inpatient unit, and a number of outpatient services like minor procedures, lab, diagnostic imaging, rehab, mental health services, dieticians and more. It is one of the few places left in the province that allows family physicians to have the rewarding professional experience of providing cradle to grave health care for their patients.
Our current facility was built in 1966 and we are excited to be watching the construction of a brand new state-of-the-art facility that is due to be completed in early 2023. This beautiful new hospital will be adjacent to the long term care facility with a beautiful healing garden and common greenspace in-between. It will overlook the Pugwash Harbour and offer a serene escape from the busy work day to all staff and physicians.
Our facility is the true meaning of collaborative care, with everything under one roof and a connected interdisciplinary team that works together to provide the best quality care for the patient. We have a small staff, of approximately 50 in total across all disciplines and services, and we are a family. We work together, look out for one another, and respect the valuable role that each and every person has to play in the patient experience.
It is a great place for new doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners to start their careers because of the wide range of experiences and exposure to new things, but it is also a great place for someone in the middle or end of their careers that are looking for a change and a refreshing atmosphere to work in every day.
Once people come here and experience it they simply don’t want to leave. Every day at North Cumberland presents a new opportunity and a new challenge, while also offering the rare chance to achieve a healthy work life balance. Even a bad day is a good day because of the team that you are working with here and we take great pride in the work that we do, but also the positive work environment that we have nurtured here in Pugwash!
