In 1998, the Civic Hospital, Ottawa General Hospital and the Riverside Hospital merged and consolidated their services and became The Ottawa Hospital. At that time the Royal Ottawa Hospital’s Psychiatric Emergency Services were transferred to The Ottawa Hospital, as were The Grace Hospital’s Medical/Surgery Services.

In 2004, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre was integrated into The Ottawa Hospital followed by The Rehabilitation Centre in 2005. We are now one of the largest teaching hospitals in Canada, and our three busy campuses offer an important resource for the communities we serve.

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute—Canada’s largest cardiovascular health centre—delivers world-class care to The Ottawa Hospital’s cardiac patients.
