Dr. Roy is actively involved clinically, at both McMaster Children's Hospital and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, providing on-call coverage, inpatient and outpatient services. He is the lead pediatric care provider, along with his multidisciplinary team, to the chronic complex and mechanically dependent fragile children in Hamilton and the region. Dr. Roy is well recognized for his excellence in teaching pediatric residents, clerks and medical students.
Dr. Roy's interests are in improving quality of care, enhancing optimum hospital utilization and patient flow, and in promoting community-tertiary centre partnerships.
