Who We Are


Kemptville District Hospital

On June 29th, 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.

Kemptville District Hospital Foundation

The Kemptville District Hospital Foundation was established in 1979 to raise funds for KDH.

Since that time, the Foundation has raised over $13,000,000 that has been used to purchase medical, surgical and diagnostic equipment, and fund large capital projects such as the new ER/OR expansion 15 years ago. Most recently, the foundation disbursed $800,000 to the hospital to build new space for the Hospital’s many clinics.

The Foundation, under the leadership of a of passionate group of volunteers continues to raise funds to ensure our community has the best in care, close to home. None of this would be possible without the incredible support of our community members and local business.
