Internal Investigation Update

January 5, 2016 – Last summer, through our internal control procedures, we identified grounds for concern arising from some of the activities in our planning and facilities department.  We launched an investigation. Today, based on the findings from this investigation, we initiated a civil lawsuit and are reporting it to the police.  As the matter is now before the court, we have no further comment at this time.

As a critical and respected public institution in our community, we know The Ottawa Hospital is held to a higher standard in how it conducts business and manages issues that arise.  We are confident that we have the appropriate internal controls in place to guide the actions and behaviours of our staff and the organization as a whole.  We do not condone or tolerate activities contrary to our values.
