A History & Profile

The Kirkland and District Hospital is a fully accredited modern, well-equipped Hospital that opened in its current location in 1975. It was originally a 132-bed Hospital and has been gradually downsized to 62 beds as follows: 6 Intensive Care, 41 Medical/Surgical, and 15 Continuing Complex Care.  The Hospital currently employs approximately 235 staff (135 full-time, 92 part-time and casual, and 11 management).

The Hospital provides emergency, general medicine, general surgery and pediatric services to the local community. It also provides a range of specialty and subspecialty diagnostic and therapeutic clinics.

The Hospital is supported by an active Auxiliary and Foundation; both organizations raise much-needed funds for Hospital equipment.

The Hospital is involved with the Northern Ontario Residency Training Program and physicians readily accept medical students for elective programs.

The active medical staff roster consists of our Chief of Staff, six family physicians, one full-time general surgeon, one GP/Anetesthetist and one physician assistant.

The visiting specialist program consists of: Neurology, Urology, Internal Medicine, Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology and Gynecology.
