Ambulatory Care Services

The Ambulatory Care Services department at North Ottawa Community Hospital offers the care patients need in a convenient, pleasant outpatient clinic environment.  Staffed by ACLS certified Registered Nurses with a wealth of experience, the staff of the Ambulatory Care Services department enjoys building relationships with patients and families in our 8 bed/recliner unit. 

Because we recognize that excellent care involves more than practicing good medicine, our facility offers the comfort of reclining chairs for most of our patients.  For those spending the day with us, we offer snacks from our refreshment cart, meals from our “At Your Request” room services, a warm blanket and more.
