About Your Hospital

First, let me say a word about our staff, physicians and volunteers at QCH. We are very proud of the caliber and dedication of these fine men and women.


In addition to providing excellent care and support, QCH staff are committed to upholding the Hospital’s Mission, Vision and Values and they place the highest priority on treating every individual with respect.

Even before Premier William Davis officially opened Queensway Carleton Hospital on October 5, 1976, the hospital had been operating its first program for over two years. Mrs. Jean Pigott opened the hospital's storefront psychiatric clinic in Bells Corners on March 25, 1974. Still the bonds to its roots lives strong as the Queensway Carleton Hospital continues to look forward and plan for the future needs of its community.

Today, Queensway Carleton Hospital is a vibrant hospital in today's ever-changing healthcare environment. We meet our community's needs while being in a healthy financial position to keep doing so. Behind our success is a committed team of healthcare professionals, physicians and volunteers whose focus remains on our patients and families.

As the only hospital located in the west end of the City, QCH serves a population of over 400,000 in western Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley and is a leader in the delivery of healthcare in the Champlain LHIN.

Over the past several years we have been expanding our facilities and services to meet these growing healthcare needs. QCH provides state-of-the-art medical care and an environment where patients and their families feel very cared for, very safe and comfortable.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Queensway Carleton Hospital’s Web site. On the following pages, you will find a "virtual tour", of sorts, that identifies and explains the many services that are available at QCH. I hope you will find the information valuable.
