Who are we? Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) was ranked #1 hospital in the region and among the top 25 in Canada by Newsweek. We are west Ottawa’s only full-service community hospital offering a diversity of medical and surgical programs and services. Employing over 2,100 health care professionals, our 264-bed hospital is the secondary referral centre for the Ottawa Valley. Operating within a lean management system, the hospital focuses on continuously improving our cornerstone programs in emergency, childbirth, geriatrics, mental health, rehabilitation, medicine, surgery and critical care services. Serving a population of greater than 500,000, QCH also has one of the fastest-growing catchment areas in Canada.
This is an exciting time to join our team. QCH has officially kicked off the True North project as part of the planning process for our new strategic plan. Over the last year, the hospital has grown from 1,300 employees to over 2,100 and the budget has quadrupled from $50 million to over $220 million. As part of this project, QCH will take a detailed look to understand the changing nature of the community we serve, assess our strengths and challenges, and examine emerging health trends. Advice will be sought from staff, physicians, volunteers, community partners and, of course, patients and families to help determine our True North – an aspirational vision for the future.
