Hants Community Hospital

Background

As part of QEII New Generation, the redevelopment of the QEII Health Sciences Centre, services are being moved out of the aging Victoria, Centennial and Dickson buildings on the VG site.  Those buildings will eventually come down. Care and services will be delivered at other hospitals or new health care facilities being built or renovated including Hants Community Hospital in Windsor. It will be taking on more surgeries as a result.

Update

  • An unused operating room along with the existing operating room have been renovated and reopened in February 2018
  • Approximately 800 more surgeries (general and orthopedic) will be done in Windsor each year - nearly doubling the annual number of procedures
  • Staff are already on track to meet that target in the first year
  • The project cost $3.8 million

Benefits

This is the first time in about 30 years Hants Community Hospital has had two operating rooms up and running. The upgrades mean:

  • Reducing wait times
  • Providing another option for where patients can go for surgery, in some cases closer to home
  • Providing modern, state-of-the-art operating rooms to work in
  • Helping recruit and retain doctors, nurses and other health professionals
  • Reinforcing the importance of the hospital to the community and surrounding area
