Who We Are


On June 28th, 1960, Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) opened its doors, thanks to years of planning and fundraising by a determined group of local volunteers. Now, in our seventh decade serving patients and families, we have evolved from a typical small rural hospital into a leading integrated health services organization, focused on building healthier communities. How we build healthier communities changes over time; however, it’s a commitment that is embedded in this hospital, in our past, present and future.

KDH is recognized as a regional leader in Joint Replacement performing total joint replacement knee and hip surgery. Our program was awarded ‘Leading Practice’ designation by the Ontario Hospital Association for reducing patient wait times and providing the best in patient care.
