The Future of Health Care Starts Here

This is a significant moment for The Ottawa Hospital and for the surrounding region as we embark on our most ambitious project to-date: the creation of a new, state-of-the-art health and research centre to replace the aging Civic Campus.

A 21st-century health and research centre

The Ottawa Hospital is Canada’s largest academic health and research centre and when it opens, the Carling Site will be home to the most advanced trauma centre, most progressive digital technology, and one of the largest neuroscience research programs in the country.


Traditional operating rooms will now be hybrid procedural suites that will allow for a collaboration of health-care providers to innovate and provide state-of-the art treatments for our patients.

“The transformation of The Ottawa Hospital will not be like anything we’ve done before. We are creating a facility – right here in our community – that will be the envy of the world for its ability to foster innovation in every aspect of health care.” – Cameron Love, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, The Ottawa Hospital

This project is far more than simply bricks and mortar – this is your hospital.

It is within these walls that you and your loved ones will experience compassionate care when it is most needed and where new discoveries will take place every day.

Together, we will build a healthier future. Join us by donating today.
