Ross Memorial Hospital
Exceptional Care - Together
Located in the heart of the City of Kawartha Lakes, Ross Memorial Hospital is an active, acute-care community hospital serving more than 80,000 local residents and seasonal visitors.
Among our acute and continuing care services, our team cares for 45,000 patients per year in the 24/7/365 emergency department, provides orthopedics, ophthalmology and general surgery, operates a 15 station dialysis unit, and is renowned for its mental health programs and restorative seniors care. The most recent expansion included the addition of MRI service.
RMH is part of the Central East Local Health Integration Network. The closest neighbouring hospitals include Peterborough Regional Health Centre 45 minutes to the east, Haliburton Highlands Health Services one hour to the north, and Lakeridge Health in Oshawa, one hour to the south. RMH is the only hospital in the City of Kawartha Lakes, a “cottage country” municipality of 3,000 sq. km located an hour-and-a-half north east of Toronto.
In 2019, the hospital received full accreditation with exemplary standing by Accreditation Canada, having met 99.6 per cent of the industry’s international standards of excellence. The Ross family takes pride in providing compassionate, quality patient care.
Ross Memorial Hospital is located on the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig in the territory covered by the Williams Treaty. We acknowledge the long history of First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples in what is now called Ontario, and we recognize the proud heritage of local First Nation communities.
