At A Glance

A quick overview


The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) was formed in 1998 through the merger of three hospitals: the Civic, General and Riverside. TOH consolidated services at its three main campuses to ensure patients receive the best possible medical care.

The Royal Ottawa Hospital’s Psychiatric Emergency Services were transferred to TOH, as were The Grace Hospital’s Medical/Surgery Services.

TOH was complete when The Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre was integrated into TOH in 2004, and The Rehabilitation Centre in 2005.

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute—Canada’s largest and foremost cardiovascular health centre—delivers world-class care to The Ottawa Hospital’s cardiac patients.

Our expertise and drive has made us the busiest hospital in Ontario, and our three bustling campuses are important community touchstones for the populations we serve.
