Lake of the Woods District Hospital is an acute care hospital located in Kenora, Ontario, staffed by an incredibly dedicated team. Our goal is to provide high quality patient-centered care to residents of the City of Kenora, surrounding communities and the large seasonal population. LWDH is a fully accredited hospital under the national standards of Accreditation Canada.
The Emergency Department provides 24-hour care for persons requiring emergency or urgent care while outpatient services include diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation, dialysis, chemotherapy and surgical services. LWDH has 24-hour air ambulance and medical transport service provided by Ornge. There are helipads on five First Nation communities and five district communities in our district.
With our physical hospital facility being nearly 100 years in some parts and with six expansions added over time to accommodate the growing needs of our population, we have arrived at a point in time where a new facility is necessary. With reconciliation also motivating this comprehensive development, LWDH is working in partnership with the Kenora Chiefs Advisory, Ontario Ministry of Health and our communities to plan a much-needed new hospital to best meet the needs of our area.
