Building a new hospital is something that we’ll do together.

The Approach

The Ottawa Hospital has committed to strong public engagement in planning its new campus. Integrating the perspectives and ideas of our patients, families, and community members will be integral in making it the best it can be.

Join the discussion

The new campus engagement process will include open discussion and deliberation around important issues, including greenspace, design, accessibility, transportation planning and parking.
This will take place in three ways: online, in person, and through a Campus Engagement Group. These three streams of engagement will work together to find solutions that work best for everyone.

Online engagement is designed to reach anyone in the Champlain LHIN who wishes to participate. Participants will be encouraged to contribute by commenting on key issues and themes or considering how different options might fit together to create a 21st-century health-care facility.

In-person sessions will allow for face-to-face forums like town halls, focus groups or other community events. These events will do more than provide an opportunity for organizations and citizens to say what is on their minds; they will be designed to get people comparing views to see how well they align with one another’s experiences.

The Campus Engagement Group will take a deep dive into issues like access and transportation, greenspace, parking and design, which have been consistently rated as most important by the public. These issues are complex and rooted in individual values.

The group’s 18 members include community leaders from local neighbourhood associations and groups that advocate for seniors, greenspace, heritage, the Central Experimental Farm, patients, and people who have disabilities.

Please visit www.greatertogether.ca/engage to share your ideas. Your feedback will be essential throughout the process so that together, we can plan and develop a campus that serves our community for generations to come.

Support our hospital

It takes a great community to build a great hospital.

While the government will fund the majority of the costs, we will be turning to you, our supporters, to cover the local share. The full scope of our fundraising campaign is unknown, but we know it will be significant. We will be funding new equipment, patient care, and space dedicated to research. Together, we will change the future of health care for our community and those we love.

Support patient care and research today, for a healthier tomorrow.
