Patients & Visitors


We may be on the frontline, but we could not do it without you behind us. We have been sustained by your daily gifts since the COVID-19 pandemic started. Your kindness has helped us to keep our spirits and energy high so that we can continue caring for the community we love. We truly are in this together – now more than ever before -- and we cannot thank you enough.

We are currently accepting the following donations:

Food Donations

We are gratefully accepting snack items, that are individually packaged, such as protein bars, trail mix and chips, for our staff. For the safety of our staff and patients, we cannot accept expired food items, homemade foods or foods bought in bulk, that are not individually wrapped, such as pizza, sandwich trays, bagels and donuts. Individually wrapped snacks can be dropped off at the main entrance of North Ottawa Community Hospital, Monday-Friday from 6:00 am-6:00 pm.

If you would like to coordinate a snack or meal donation for our colleagues please contact Michelle Evans at or call 616.847.5215.

Please do not drop off items if you are sick or have been around individuals who are symptomatic.
