The Ottawa Hospital is one of Canada’s largest acute care hospitals. Since it was created in 1998, The Ottawa Hospital has been gradually earning a national reputation as a great place in which to work, to provide patient care, to pursue training in a health-care profession, or to conduct research.

For the communities of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), it has also become a place where health-care services are provided with compassion and a commitment to quality and excellence.

The Ottawa Hospital is, first and foremost, a community resource. A voluntary Board of Governors governs The Ottawa Hospital on behalf of the community.

The Board is responsible for providing strategic leadership to the Hospital by establishing and regularly reviewing the Vision, Mission and Core Values. The Board is also responsible for making sure that the hospital meets the health-care needs of the community within the resources that are available to provide services.

Board members bring a wide range of skills and experience to their leadership role. The Board include representatives from communities in the Champlain LHIN.

The Board of Governors welcomes input from members of the public. Individuals wishing to bring matters to the attention of the Board should submit their request in writing to:
