The Lennox and Addington County General Hospital provides primary and secondary care to almost 30,000 residents of Lennox and Addington and portions of Hastings County and North Frontenac. The hospital currently operates 32 beds (24 active care and 8 chronic care). This will increase to 52 beds on the completion of a $ 20 million redevelopment project which is currently taking place. The project includes complex continuing care unit, new operating rooms and a major expansion of the ambulatory clinic areas and the Emergency department.
The Hospital’s emphasis on General Medicine and General Surgery reflects its role in providing core services. Specialists from Kingston regularly hold clinics at the hospital.
The hospital offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic services supported by a well-equipped laboratory and diagnostic imaging department. There is an Emergency department which operates 24 hours a day and treats 24,000 patients per year.
Napanee has been declared an under-serviced community. In response to this, members of the community have recently formed the Doctor Recruitment Committee in an effort to alleviate shortages and attract more doctors for the area.
