Facilities Lake Region Healthcare
Groups Lake Region Healthcare


Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) welcomed Dr. Paul Wawin to our Psychiatry department in 2020.

Dr. Wawin received his Medical Degree from the Medical University of the Americans in Nevis, West Indies and completed his residency at Memorial University Faculty of Medicine in St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

He has served as a contracted psychiatrist at several hospitals in Canada over the past several years. Prior to receiving his Medical Degree, Dr. Wawin operated a private psychotherapy practice in Nova Scotia, Canada and served in both Chaplaincy and Social Work roles at hospitals in that region.

When asked about choosing to join the team at LRH, Dr. Wawin said when he came for an onsite visit and met the psychiatry team, he was inspired by the opportunity to join such a high quality group of providers and staff.

He chose to practice psychiatry because because many people who are suffering with mental illness are forgotten or face very significant challenges. He said “when you can help them, you can really make a significant difference in the trajectory of their lives. It’s so exciting when proper treatment results in a new hope.”

In his spare time, Dr. Wawin enjoys playing golf and fishing.
