To relieve illness and suffering, and to help people live healthier lives

Norfolk General Hospital (NGH) is proud of its dedicated team of health care professionals who are focused on delivering safe and quality care to its patients, clients, families and communities. NGH is a great place to work, as people are the heart of our organization, and the success of NGH is a direct result of our employees’ dedication, professionalism, and commitment.

NGH is the largest health authority in Norfolk County – and one of the largest employers. NGH is a community of approximately 900 staff, volunteers, and physicians that provides exceptional care to nearly 70,000 residents in Norfolk County and surrounding areas from before birth to end of life.

We offer expertise in several areas, including 24/7 Emergency Department care, Medicine, Internal Medicine, Anesthesia, Surgery, Critical Care, Obstetrics, Complex Continuing Care, and various specialty clinics.

As a 120-bed hospital, we focus daily on improving the quality of care for the patient and family experience. In 2020, Accreditation Canada provided NGH with the highest accreditation award available – Accreditation with Exemplary Standing. This clearly illustrates NGH’s dedication to providing the highest quality of care to the community.

NGH is dedicated to educating the health care leaders of tomorrow by training physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and other health care professionals in collaboration with our academic partners, including McMaster University.

Sitting directly beside our facility is the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home (NHNH). It is an 80-bed facility that has been caring for its community for nearly 50-years. The publicly owned, non-profit facility opened in 1975. NHNH employs approximately 90 dedicated employees and operates under the direction of an independent ten-member community volunteer Board of Trustees. NHNH is also fully accredited by Accreditation Canada.

The Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home offers a warm and friendly atmosphere. Its mission is to enrich lives with dignity, care, and compassion.
