Who We Are
St. Joseph’s General Hospital Elliot Lake (SJGHEL) is comprised of three sites offering three distinct types of patient-centred care. We have the Hospital – our acute-care, 55-bed facility; St. Joseph’s Manor – our 64-bed Long Term Care Home; and The Oaks – our 68 bed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centre. Each of these sites together these offer a broad spectrum of career opportunities! Please take a moment and let us introduce you to “The People Behind the Masks”
