In Guelph, he was chief of anesthesia at both St. Joseph’s and Guelph General hospitals for over 13 years. He also served as president of the medical staff at the Guelph General from 1992-95. His ultimate aim, in conjunction with the principles of the OMA and its Section on Anesthesia, was to bring an anesthetic standard of care of the highest quality to the Guelph community. Upon leaving active practice at the Guelph General he provided anesthesia for patients at the Homewood Hospital until his retirement in 2008.”
