A strong commitment to putting patients and families at the centre of care has earned two physicians a special honour at the Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH) site of Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC).

In just over a month, Kingston Health Sciences Centre will be welcoming about 130 new medical residents. Once they arrive, they will be spending the next several years with us, completing their training to become full physicians while helping care for patients and families at both our Hotel Dieu Hospital and Kingston General Hospital sites.

KHSC specialists take part in eConsult project

It’s not unusual for a visit to a family physician to end in a referral to a specialist in the quest for more information or treatment for a health concern.  These days, long wait lists mean it may take some time before the patient actually sees that specialist.  A new pilot project in our region is aiming to reduce or eliminate that wait. 

Province announces funding boost for KHSC

Patients and families in Southeastern Ontario will soon be benefitting from a focus on healthcare in the 2017 Provincial budget. Recently unveiled at Queen’s Park, the budget guaranteed a minimum two per cent increase in base funding for each hospital in Ontario. It also included an increase of 3.8 percent in total healthcare spending.
