History of CEEH
Jacob Lewis Englehart, born in Cleveland, Ohio November 2, 1847, came to London, Ontario at the age of ninteen and built a small refinery. Englehart searched for a crude petroleum to supply his expanding refinery. When the City of London refused to build a pipeline from the Petrolia oil fields to London, Englehart sold his refinery and moved to Petrolia in 1876, where he started another refinery. This refinery eventually became Imperial Oil.
In 1891, Jake married Charlotte Eleanor Thompson. Their home was an imposing red brick Victorian mansion. Jake and Charlotte took up golf and built a six-hole course at the foot of the hill.
On December 31, 1908, Charlotte died. The contents of her will revealed that she deeded the residence, property and golf course to the town for the establishment of a hospital after Jake’s death. In 1911, the thirteen-bed capacity Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital opened.

The Petrolia Family Medicine Training site began training full time residents in 2011. Since then, the clinic has had multiple residents train and graduate to board-certified status. Many have thoroughly enjoyed their experience and have stayed in the Lambton county area to practise primary care medicine.

What is it about having your practice in Petrolia and the community that is positive and unique?
The unique part about having a practice in Petrolia is the ability to practice rural family medicine without being far away from an urban centre. You have the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of family medicine in a small town with the support of specialists in Sarnia and London.
My practice, for instance, includes having my own clinics, doing emergency medicine, looking after acute care patients admitted to the hospital, taking care of chronic care patients, and working as one of the physicians on staff at the Lambton Public Health Unit. In addition, I have the unique opportunity to participate in hospital administration and management. Just a few months ago, I was appointed adjunct professor at the Schulich School of Dentistry and Medicine. Having a practice in Petrolia, not only allows you to develop a diverse work setting, it also provides a tremendous amount of opportunities for self-and career-development.”
