About our Hospital

You'll want to work with Cornwall Community Hospital because…We've been caring for our community for over 100 years and we're proud of our history!

Cornwall Community Hospital was incorporated in 2004 with the amalgamation of the Cornwall General Hospital and the acute care services of the Hotel Dieu Hospital, both with over 100 years of health care service to Cornwall and surrounding area. With the completion of a major redevelopment project in 2014, and the construction the Addiction and Mental Health Centre at the end of 2016, the hospital consolidated all acute care and community based services on their McConnell avenue site. Having everything on one campus positions the hospital well to serve its community for many years to come.
