Message from the President

None of us plan to get sick.

We don't expect to be one of the people in our city who will suffer a stroke today; be involved in a life-threatening accident; or be informed by our family doctor after a routine check-up that we have serious kidney disease or cancer. Every day, families across our region experience these types of events. If it happens to you, your spouse, your mother or father, your son or daughter, you want to know that staff at the Hospital will provide the very best care-right here in Ottawa.

The dedicated team of health care professionals at The Ottawa Hospital is made up of people who are passionate about providing outstanding care to individuals whose lives depend on us. I hope that our passion to provide the highest level of care becomes your passion.

Today, I invite you to become part of a special group of people dedicated to building a better hospital. By joining the President's Council, you will have a lasting and far-reaching impact on the Hospital's ability to provide excellent health care to you and your loved ones.

Dr. Jack Kitts
President and CEO
The Ottawa Hospital
