A word from the Chief of Staff
The members of the medical team at Hawkesbury & District General Hospital (HGH) are proud to offer patient-centered health-care services that are provided with compassion. We are also proud to work and live in a bilingual community. We are devoted to excellence in the health-care services we provide and place strong emphasis on teamwork, innovation and leadership.
HGH is set to become a regional full-service hospital when our re-development project is completed in 2018. This means that patients will have access to a wide array of specialized health-care services closer to home. Our team of more than 100 physicians and specialists is already preparing for this new and exciting reality.
Since 2014, we have recruited a number of doctors and specialists. These health-care professionals play an important role in reducing the wait time in our emergency department and for certain specialties such as orthopedics and gynecology. Our health-care professionals also offer specialized services such as nephrology and otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) that were previously unavailable in our region.
HGH is officially designated a medical teaching hospital thanks to its affiliation with the University of Ottawa. In addition, we also welcome and teach students in health-care programs from Collège La Cité.
We are proud to participate in the teaching and training of our future health-care professionals.
MD, CCFP, MHSc.
