Hospitals, Doctors and Clinics
Leeds & Grenville is home to two world-class hospitals:
Brockville General Hospital
Kemptville District Hospital
Additionally, there are several hospitals near Leeds & Grenville that provide services to people from this region:
When you need medical care that is not urgent or would like to have a check-up, you should go to a family doctor. This doctor is also called a general practitioner or family physician. You need to be registered as a patient to get medical care from a family doctor.
Family doctors have a limit on the number of patients they will allow to register. This sometimes makes finding a doctor difficult for both newcomers and people born in Canada. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has a Doctor Search on their website, to help you find a family doctor in this area. Other ways to look for a family doctor is to call a local hospital, or ask your friends and relatives if their doctor is accepting new patients.
Walk-in clinics provide health care services if you are sick and do not have a family doctor or unable to meet with your family doctor. Usually appointments are not needed. It is best to call before visiting to check the clinic’s hours as they sometimes change. Some clinics are open in the evenings, and on weekends and holidays.
