Our team puts patients at the center of all that we do. Please take a few moments to meet the men and women who make The Ottawa Hospital successful.
Together, we’re working for our patients, their loved ones and our community.
It’s their stories that inspire our vision each and every day, and it’s on their behalf that we pursue excellence in patient care.
Today, physicians at The Ottawa Hospital are delivering quality patient care and developing new ways to treat patients that will subsequently benefit all Canadians. We are proud that our physicians work at the forefront of exceptional patient care delivery.
Our physicians can also be found conducting important clinical research, serving as teachers and leaders, and working outside the hospital in the broader community. Within the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, our team is driving breakthrough research that is impacting patient care both near and far.
Quality patient care at The Ottawa Hospital would not be possible without our dedicated professional nursing team.
Nurses work closely with patients to manage their care. From comforting patients, to monitoring their vital signs, properly administering medication and more, our nurses serve the community with commitment and skill, blending compassion with knowledge.
Nurses also give emotional and educational support to patients and their families. In addition to providing care at the bedside, they play important roles in training, research and leadership.
To complete the circle of care, The Ottawa Hospital relies on a range of health-care professionals. From the dietitian who ensures nutritional needs are met, to the pharmacist who advises and provides drug therapy, each play a vital role in treatment, research and safety.
A patient might also work with a radiation therapist, a cardiopulmonary technician, an audiologist, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist or social worker, among others. Each member of this integrated team ensures that every patient who walks through our doors has access to the best possible care.
Without our dedicated support staff, The Ottawa Hospital would not be able to provide patients with timely and appropriate care. Support staff members are essential in creating a reliable, efficient and organized environment, and play an essential role in caring for our patients.
With more than 12,000 employees, the hospital requires a skilled and professional group of people to ensure our doors remain open to the public. Working as a team, support staff members take daily responsibility for the smooth, efficient and safe operation of our hospital and research facilities.
The work of our support staff—every day of the year—is integral to our ability to provide excellent health care to our community.
Volunteerism is the lifeblood of The Ottawa Hospital and is an excellent example of compassion in action.
The hospital belongs to the community it serves, and we welcome members of the public to The Ottawa Hospital to visit friends and loved ones, and to learn and grow with us. We are also lucky to have more than 1,600 people who volunteer their time, energy and expertise to work with our staff and contribute to our patients’ positive experience of the hospital.
