Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation



The Owen Sound Regional Hospital opened in 1986 and is both the community hospital for Owen Sound and the specialist, acute care centre for Grey & Bruce counties.  It is one of six hospitals operating as Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS).

More than 100 specialist physicians practice at the hospital, including 26 surgeons.  A wide range of clinical services are offered, including ambulatory care, oncology, emergency, women and child care, surgical & acute care services, mental health, rehabilitation, diagnostic imaging and laboratory.  The hospital also provides dialysis, the Ontario Breast Screening Program and is the designated Stroke Centre for the region.  It has extensive laboratory and diagnostic imaging facilities. Approximately 102,000 people use its services each year.

Our wonderfully generous community has donated millions of dollars for medical & diagnostic equipment, facility upgrades and clinical staff training through the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation.
