Hospital recognized with National Capital Region’s Top Employer Award for workplace excellence

OTTAWA – (January 29, 2020) – The Ottawa Hospital has once again been recognized for providing a supportive and collaborative work environment for all staff. For the third consecutive year, the hospital received the National Capital Region’s Top Employers Award. The Ottawa Hospital is the third largest employer in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, and one of Canada’s largest learning and research hospitals.

National Capital Region’s Top Employers is an annual competition, organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. The award recognizes employers in the Ottawa-Gatineau metropolitan area that offer an exceptional place to work and the most progressive programs compared to other organizations in their field.

“Providing world-class care is only possible if you have world-class staff, which The Ottawa Hospital does,” said Dr. Jack Kitts, President and CEO, The Ottawa Hospital. “Staff, physicians, volunteers and researchers are all dedicated to provide the best care possible to all patients. Creating a work environment that allows staff to be at their very best is a top priority for the hospital.”

The Ottawa Hospital maintains a Healthy Workplace Task Force to support employee efforts in making healthy lifestyle choices for physical and mental well-being. Along with being a major teaching hospital, affiliated with the University of Ottawa, The Ottawa Hospital offers training and development for individuals at various stages of their careers, from tuition subsidies for employees interested in job-related courses, to summer employment and paid internships for students and new grads.
