FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022 – Kemptville District Hospital (KDH), like many hospitals across Ontario, is currently experiencing high patient volumes in our Emergency Department combined with staffing shortages. If you are able to seek medical attention for a mild ailment (non-urgent) at a walk-in clinic or book an appointment with your primary care provider, we encourage you to please do so to help preserve our capacity to provide emergency care to our community.

People who do not have a family doctor or nurse practitioner to provide care in a timely manner can call the new Health Connect Ontario service at 811 for advice or chat online with a registered nurse at Health Connect Ontario,

If you are planning a visit to KDH we suggest you check our website first for any updates:
