The physicians and health care providers working and living in Renfrew and Area are doing so by choice. We asked them why they choose Renfrew and why are they staying.


Dr. Bodig“What drew us to Renfrew specifically were the collegiality amongst the doctors, and the smooth operation and friendly staff of the new medical clinic.

We also felt that there was a sense of community in the town and that there would be a lot of opportunities for us to get involved.”

Dr. Jessica Bodig - January 2012

Dr. Pinard“A rural practice, more direct involvement in overall patient care than the city, good relationships with other physicians and hospital management and a vibrant medical community, these are some of the reasons I choose to live and practice in Renfrew.”

Dr. Phillippe Pinard - January 2012

Dr. Arcand"I found Renfrew by chance. I was placed here for my Family Residency rotations.

I fell in love with the place. It’s a beautiful community with lots of nice lakes around it.

We wanted to live in a small community; it’s the perfect size and close to the Ottawa."

Dr. Jennifer Arcand

Dr. Varrin“The dedication the people of Renfrew have for the community hospital is incredible. A family doctor here is not a job, it’s a lifestyle.

Doctors are supported by a dedicated staff at Renfrew Victoria Hospital. The big city hospitals I’ve trained in are no comparison.”

Dr. Angela Varrin - January 2011

"I moved to Renfrew in 1996 and have been impressed with the variety of quality services that the Renfrew Victoria Hospital provides. The staff at the hospital are wonderful. We continue to provide quality care to our patients. I have also found it an excellent community to raise my family in. The proximity to some wonderful facilities like Calabogie Peaks is super."

Dr. Stephnaie Langlois

"Renfrew is a great place to live and work.  There is a well run hospital, a collegial medical group and a very relaxed environment overall.  It's been a great place to start up our practice and a very welcoming community."

Dr. Allison Clarke
