Our Paediatrician Team
Dr. Heather Bhan
My name is Heather Bhan and I've been working as a paediatrician in Belleville for the past year. I completed my medical school and paediatric training at McMaster University in Hamilton where I also practiced for my first few years. I love paediatrics because I love spending time with and treating children and am always amazed at what I learn from them!
Outside of work I love to figure skate (well not as much anymore, but I still love to watch it), hike, run, swim and do pretty much anything outdoors.
I'm so happy to be a part of QHC Pediatrics department and to help care for your children!

Dr. Kelly Vanier
Hi! My name is Kelly Vanier. I have been practicing Consulting Pediatrics in the Quinte area since 2007.
I moved to Belleville with my family after completing my residency in Ottawa, at CHEO - the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
I have a busy general consulting practice, where I have the opportunity to help children and families with a variety of conditions. In addition, I have also developed a special interest in developmental pediatrics, and enjoy working with the multi-disciplinary team as the Medical Director of the Quinte Children's Treatment Centre.
In my spare time, I enjoy cycling and karate, as well as watching my children (and the Blue Jays!) play baseball.
