BIO

Dr. Meghan Harmon is a staff Emergency and Critical Care specialist in our Langley hospital; near Vancouver, BC. Originally hailing from the midwestern United States, Dr. Harmon has had the opportunity to practice and teach in both university and private practice environments. Board certified in 2014, Dr. Harmon was a criticalist at the University of Missouri before working in a busy private practice in Seattle, WA. She joined the team at Boundary Bay in April 2020, and is excited to provide the highest level of critical care for hospitalized ICU patients.

Dr. Harmon’s special interests and prior research has centered around coagulation and platelet function analysis. She also enjoys working with critical post-operative cases, patients suffering from sepsis, and complex trauma cases. Dr. Harmon has lectured locally, nationally (IVECCS, ACVIM, AVMA), and internationally on a wide range of topics ranging from respiratory disease to hemostasis to feline lower urinary tract disease.

When not at work, Dr. Harmon enjoys rock climbing, hiking, cooking, and relaxing with her husband, 2 dogs (Newfoundland and fox terrier mix), and curmudgeon cat.
