A word from the Chief of Staff

Dr. Julie Maranda
The medical team of over 150 members at the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH) is proud to provide compassionate patient-centred health care services. 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.

With the completion of our major redevelopment project in 2020, HGH has become a regional full-service hospital. This means that patients now have access to a wide array of specialized health care services closer to home.

In the past few years, we have recruited a number of doctors in different specialties. 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, geriatrics, urogynecology 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.
