Please contact Stephanie Fitzgerald at

Welcome to Cambridge Memorial Hospital's (CMH) website. We appreciate the opportunity to provide you with information about our hospital. Our vision is to provide the residents of Cambridge and North Dumfries with exceptional, high quality and safe patient care by our exceptional staff, physicians and volunteers.

Our priorities are to deliver high quality, sustainable care for our patients, enhancing the patient experience, completing the hospital's construction project and expanding services for our growing community. 

We are very pleased to have moved into our new patient care wing in January 2020. This facility, built with the most up-to-date infection prevention and control building codes, enhanced our our stringent infection control practices that helped keep our personnel, patients and their families safe throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We started the third and final phase of the capital redevelopment project in 2021. This phase includes the complete refurbishment of 150,000 sq. feet of patient care space in Wing B. This patient care wing will boast the same technology, infection control and patient privacy standards as the new wing. Completing this project will also allow us to expand services to our fullest potential so that we can serve Cambridge, North Dumfries and the Region of Waterloo for generations.

As an organization, we are very proud to demonstrate our accountabilities to you and our community. We believe a hospital that is transparent is one that you can trust. You can view the patient safety public reporting indicators we report to the public, such as the surgical safety checklist. You can see our commitment to patient safety by reading the latest Quality Improvement Plan. All of our accountabilities are grouped under easy to navigate tabs called Quality in Patient CareFinancialsWait Times and Policies.

If you want to learn more about the organization and our accomplishments over the past year, visit us on our social media channels or look for an upcoming 'Report to the Community.' We welcome input from our community and would like to know what you have to say about CMH. If you have a story to share or a concern you want answered, please send your message using the contact information found on this page.
