Welcome to Marathon! Do you have a passion for rural remote medicine? Seeking a break from city life and the long commutes? How about a 10 minute commute… on foot!
A great place to live . . .

This beautiful area of the north shore of Lake Superior offers many post-work activities. In the summer, we have mountain biking, tennis, hiking, golf, ultimate frisbee, fishing,
volleyball and more.. Sea-kayaking is fabulous on the big lake – we are happy to lend you kayaks or canoes. Neys Provincial Park and Pukaskwa National Park are each twenty minutes away.

In the winter, we have cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skating, hiking, indoor swimming, ice fishing, skidooing and more. All recreational activities are free to locums.
A great place to practice…

We are a multidisciplinary clinic(nine(9) Associate Physicians, PA, NP, RN, RPN, Social Worker, Dietitian, Epidemiologist, Health Promotion Coordinator, HCA, and nine support staff) serving a town of 4000 including two reserves. ER call is manageable with typically no more than 15 pts per 24 hr shift. A local doc is always on for ER back up as second on call. The regional centre is 300 km away. We have a spacious clinic next to the hospital with docs sharing a large open-style room offering lots of opportunity for corridor consults. Clinic appointments are 20 min slots.
Two comfortable, tastefully furnished 3 bedroom locum houses can accommodate a family or two friends locuming together. Our EMR is “OSCAR”.

To request a complete locum package or for any other locum related questions, please email Brett Redden-Physician Recruiter and Community Connector bredden@mfht.org.
