Message from CEO and Chief of Staff

With a number of changes in the landscape of health care, both on a provincial and local level, recent years have been active for physicians at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital.

We are proud to state that, as an organization, the term status quo is not in our vocabulary. We make a commitment to be there in times of need and we honor that commitment each and every day to provide excellent, patient-centered, compassionate care to the communities we serve.

Our dedicated staff, physicians and volunteers are committed to excellence in patient and family centred care and to the promotion of wellness and health education, delivered with compassion, respect and dignity. We are proud of our hospital and the services we provide.

Physician participation, leadership and input are embraced by the hospital. Our culture is one which fosters an open, collaborative environment where teamwork and professional development flourish. Our quest for excellence is supported at all levels of the organization.

Our professionals create an environment of calm competence under the most stressful and demanding of situations. Just as people depend upon loved ones in difficult times; they depend upon the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital.

Of the 159 hospitals in Ontario, we are recognized as being a high performer with regards to patient satisfaction. We have received accolades from CBC News as being an “A+” hospital and have also achieved full accreditation with exemplary standing from Accreditation Canada.

We invite you to visit to learn more about the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital and the valued role you can play in helping to achieve our Mission. We hope that you will consider joining us at our exemplary hospital in the Province of Ontario.

Thank you for your interest in our dynamic organization.
