Medical & Diagnostic Services
Building capacity to expand services
Our Medical Services team continues to provide high-quality medical care to Grandview families. As the population of Durham steadily increases, our three full-time Developmental Paediatricians at Grandview are working to address growing needs.
We were proud to be involved with the Ontario Diagnostic Hubs for Autism and have completed the expected Hub assessments over the last 2 years. We were pleased to be invited as a Hub partner for a 3rd year. This brings additional diagnostic access to families close to home.
We have also expanded community capacity pertaining to Autism assessment and diagnosis with our Pediatric Associates, Drs. Buors and Campbell. We look forward to providing training for Dr. Sonali Mohile in the upcoming year.
Grandview was pleased to host its first ever education day for Community and Developmental Pediatricians in Durham Region and nearby areas; it was a huge success attended by nearly every pediatrician in our region.
We are thrilled to be in a very select group of Children’s Treatment Centres that can boast having on staff two Developmental Pediatricians who have passed the elite Developmental Pediatrics examination by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. There are only 10 physicians in Ontario that have passed this examination and we have two here at Grandview Kids! Congratulations to Dr. Shannon Knights and Dr. Abby Siapno for achieving this SIGNIFICANT accomplishment.
Dr. Hunt remains busy with many leadership opportunities including planning the important Child Development update at the University of Toronto upcoming in November 2019. Dr. Hunt has also been asked to be a member of the Complex Care Ontario Health Team planning submission; a significant milestone in our journey to host a complex care clinic at Grandview to support care for medically fragile children close to home.
