Building the future of health care
The Ottawa Hospital is on track with plans to build a new hospital that will lead the way for the future of health care and transform patient experience for the people we serve across the greater Ottawa and Eastern Ontario region, Western Quebec and Nunavut.
The new hospital will be the most modern in Canada, an incredible state-of-the-art building that will be a catalyst for reshaping health care in our community and across the region.
“With our new campus, we’re building a system, not just a site,” said The Ottawa Hospital’s President and CEO Cameron Love. “The Ottawa Hospital is focused on enriching the quality of care for patients and their loved ones. The new campus will increase capacity for us to respond to the pressures exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and allow us to advance care and provide a better patient experience during and after time in hospital.”
Every patient will have their own room, equipped with an accessible washroom, and space for a loved one to spend the night. Smart in-room digital screens will keep patients connected with their loved ones who are unable to visit the hospital and there will be designated spaces for spiritual reflection, ceremony and healing.
“Every community in Canada is experiencing challenges related to wait times and staffing shortages are adding pressure across the entire health system,” said Love. “The new campus will help us respond to demands across all of The Ottawa Hospital’s campuses and support us in providing the excellent care and experience patients and their families expect and deserve. It will help us attract some of the best medical minds in the world, making Ottawa a hub for health research, discovery and training.”
