Message from the Board Chair and the President


Please contact Cheryl Vandervalk 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.

This year, we are focusing on two organizational priorities: delivering high quality, sustainable care for our patients and building a new hospital that will serve you and your family for the next 50 years. We are very pleased to be in the construction phase of our project. All six levels of the new patient care wing are now visible and is gradually becoming enclosed as each day passes!

This year is an important one for the hospital and our community, as we plan for our eventual occupation of the new patient care wing. We expect to first move in by spring of 2017. At that time our staff, physicians and volunteers will have a few months to "commission" the building (i.e., install clinical and IT equipment, test medical lines, etc.) so that we can begin treating patients. Yes, we will be moving the Emergency Department entrance once again, but this time it will remain in the same place for the next 50 years!

At CMH, we are very proud to demonstrate our accountabilities to our community. We believe that a transparent hospital is one 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 four easy to navigate tabs called Quality in Patient Care, Financials, Wait Times and Policies.

If you want to learn more about us and our accomplishments over the past year, please read our Report to our Community, which will come out in the fall of 2017 or sign up to read communit-E-cast newsletter. We welcome input from our community and would like to 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 below.
