Message from Dr. Jack Kitts to the Ottawa community

Dr Jack Kitts

To the community of Ottawa and surrounding area, I am writing this parting letter to you.

To all of you who have come to The Ottawa Hospital in a time of need, thank you for putting your trust in us.

To those who have shared your experience at the hospital with me, your insights have made us better.

To the donors, volunteers, patient advisors and committee members, your support has been and remains essential. 

All of you have helped The Ottawa Hospital become the world-class hospital it is today. It fills me with pride and gratitude to see how much we have grown and all that we have accomplished together.

I will always cherish how you have supported and celebrated our staff over the years – and especially in the past few months. It warms my heart to know that you are there for them, as they are there for you.

Looking ahead, with your support, we will build a 21st-century hospital that reflects the community’s vision, supports a healthier city and values kindness, compassion, research and innovation.

As a parent and grandparent myself, I couldn’t be any more hopeful for the future of health care in Ottawa.
