Southeastern Ontario's leading centre for complex-acute and specialty care

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.

KGH is a site of Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC) and is southeastern Ontario’s centre for complex, acute and specialty care, research and teaching. KHSC serves 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.

We are one of the largest employers in Southeastern Ontario and we have over 1000 volunteers who contribute their energy and skills to caring for others.
