Re-imagining the future of healthcare

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.

Re-imagining today. Creating tomorrow.

The Ottawa Hospital is Canada’s largest academic health and research centre and when it opens, the new hospital campus on Carling Avenue will be home to the most advanced trauma centre, most progressive digital technology, and one of the strongest neuroscience research programs in the world.

In the latest edition of the new Civic Development CheckPoint, read how architects are designing the hospital with Ottawa’s daylight and weather patterns in mind. You’ll also get a look at groundbreaking research and meet the team working hard behind the scenes to plan a hospital for the future.

“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 healthcare.” – Cameron Love, President & CEO, The Ottawa Hospital

The new Carling site is the largest and most important healthcare infrastructure project ever in Ottawa, with an estimated cost of $2.5-$3 billion. We are raising an unprecedented $400 million in community support and every dollar raised will help leverage four more dollars of government infrastructure investment.

This project is far more than simply bricks and mortar – this is your hospital. Join us as we re-imagine the future of healthcare
