What will be discussed? The Ottawa Hospital is committed to delivering the best health care possible and meeting the needs of our community. The opportunity exists to redevelop the Civic Campus at a new location in the city’s core and creating a 21st Century Hospital that will be one of the most modern and technologically advanced health care facilities of our time.
What does this mean for Ottawa? A more than $2 billion investment in a 21st Century Hospital is a significant city-building initiative that will ensure the citizens of Ottawa continue to receive the best care possible for generations to come in an environment that promotes wellness, learning and research. It is also a major job and economic-development driver for the Region.
Why is a 21st Century Hospital needed? Currently, many of the Civic Campus buildings date back to the Hospital’s origin, at the turn of the last century. The age of these facilities, combined with limited space on the 23-acre site, create challenging conditions to meet the future needs of Ottawa’s growing and aging population.
Who should attend? All residents and business-owners of Ottawa and surrounding communities who have an interest in a 21st Century Hospital in the city core. All organizations and interest groups that have an interest in heritage; health and wellness; urban planning; economic development; scientific and medical research; etc.
