The Prescott-Russell region is our home. We enjoy our quality of life and we value the many benefits of living here: pace, open spaces, fresh air and knowing our neighbours. We value family and community, and we take care of one another.
Within the coming months, we will reap the rewards of the major redevelopment of our hospital. Nearly a decade of planning, plus five years of construction and preparation will result in a new Hawkesbury and District General Hospital! This beautiful new patient-centred facility will be complete at the end of 2020 and will usher in a new era of healthcare for the people of our region, right here at home.
What does this expansion mean for patients and families? It means improved access to care right here at home. It means we will no longer need to travel to Ottawa for specialized services, diagnostic tests and weekly or monthly evaluations. It also means that very soon, many more types of surgeries, treatments and tests will become available right here at HGH.
Thanks to our generous donors, we helped our hospital acquire a new CT scan and its first MRI through the Access 2018 campaign.
Building the New HGH was a huge undertaking and is a great achievement for Prescott-Russell. I extend my sincere thanks to so many in our community who supported this expansion. Very soon, our patients will have access to a full-service regional hospital housed in modern infrastructure with leading-edge medical equipment and technology. We could not have done it without our generous donors and the help of the Foundation.
-Marc LeBoutillier, CEO, Hawkesbury and District General Hospital
We Keep On Building Because There’s No Place Like Home!
Over the next 3 to 5 years, our focus will be on enhancing services in orthopedic surgery, ophthalmology and advanced mammography. This focus reflects the most pressing and increasing needs of our local population. Community support will continue to help ensure that new medical equipment is available to meet our healthcare needs and to make the most of the recent redevelopment and expansion.
The journey is just beginning! Please join us by supporting new programs at HGH that will benefit you and your loved ones, and enable your family to receive more specialty care, closer to home.
