Kingston General Hospital (KGH) is a community of people dedicated to transforming the patient and family experience through innovative and collaborative approaches to care, knowledge and leadership.

As southeastern Ontario’s leading centre for complex-acute and specialty care, and home to the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario, KGH serves, through its Kingston facility and 24 regional affiliate and satellite sites, almost 500,000 people who live in a 20,000-square-kilometre predominantly rural area, as well as some communities on James Bay in Ontario’s north.

In the Greater Kingston area we are the third largest employer and we have over 820 volunteers who contribute their energy and skills to caring for others.
