Message from the Chair & CEO


Welcome to the Espanola Regional Hospital and Health Centre, the healthcare hub of the Lacloche Foothills region.


Espanola Regional Hospital and Health Centre (ERHHC) serves a population of approximately 15,000.  Our 79-bed facility boasts a modern state of the art hospital that features a very busy, newly renovated, 24-hour emergency department, acute care, long-term care, and a full range of services including a medical lab, diagnostic imaging (e.g. x-ray and ultrasound), cardiac program, physiotherapy as well as a 30-unit Seniors Apartment Building and a 19-unit Assisted Living Complex and a Family Health Team that is equipped for six physicians and a team of allied health professionals. We are also home to an on-site Pharmacy, a 6 bed sleep lab and a Community Care Access Centre.

Espanola Regional Hospital and Health Centre is often referred to as a model health campus. Organizations such as the Ontario Hospital Association, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), the Northeast Local Health Integration Network and other well-respected healthcare organizations, believe that our health campus is a great example of how healthcare facilities and communities can integrate and coordinate health services all within shared walls – creating a “one-stop shop” for patients and their families. 


Our facility is staffed with a team of dedicated and talented individuals who have many years’ experience and more importantly, render care that always puts patients first. We are committed to continuous learning and quality improvement and as a result, staff members regularly participate in ongoing education and training events to enable the provision of improved patient care. 


Espanola Regional Hospital and Health Centre (ERHHC) has undergone an extensive, four-phase, redevelopment of its facility which began in July 2013. Taking just over two years, the project resulted in the creation of a new state of the art emergency department (ED) doubling in size to just over 10,000 sq. ft. These enhancements were made to improve patient flow, safety and quality of care. Other features of the redevelopment included a new medication room and registration area as well as an upgrade to the main entrance, auxiliary and foundation office.
