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.

In spring 2017, the hospital asked third-party specialists to conduct research and report back on how best to engage with the community and patients, using the Ontario Public Engagement Framework as a guide. Their report was released in September 2017, and you can read it here.

That process will include open discussion and deliberation around important issues, including greenspace, design, accessibility, transportation planning and parking.

This report marks an important first step in the hospital’s evolving views on engagement, and charts a path towards a process that will be meaningful, transparent, and inclusive. The report will provide the basis for the hospital to plan its multi-year engagement strategy in detail.

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.
