Welcome to Hawkesbury and District General Hospital

The Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH) provides compassionate, safe and quality patient care to the residents of Prescott-Russell in Eastern Ontario and surrounding areas.

HGH is a bilingual, 100-bed community hospital providing a full range of programs and services from its main campus in Hawkesbury and two satellite centres in Clarence-Rockland and Casselman.

Growing to serve you better

In August 2014, HGH began construction of its new hospital taking the first step in its transformation to a full-service regional hospital providing:

  • More inpatient beds
  • Expanded healthcare services
  • New and renovated hospital facilities
  • State-of-the-art equipment and technologies

New patent letters

On June 28, 2017, the HGH Board of Directors adopted a resolution to update the corporation’s patent letters, including a change of the legal name. Previously, the legal name had a bilingual form. Starting October 1, 2017, the new legal name has an English version and a French version that may be used independently.

The new English legal name is: Hawkesbury and District General Hospital

The new French legal name is: Hôpital général de Hawkesbury et district
