Kemptville

North Grenville is an urban and rural municipality of approximately 15,000 people, located just 20 minutes from the world class amenities of downtown Ottawa, the Ottawa International Airport, Highway 401 and the border with the US at Ogdensburg, New York.

North Grenville is home to the Kemptville District Hospital, a fully accredited healthcare facility based on advanced expertise, technologies and patient care practices. We offer 24-hour emergency services. Our use of new medical technology such as telehealth and remote diagnostic imaging has made us a service leader in Eastern Ontario. Our surgical program provides timely access to high demand specialists, while our staff’s dedication to patient care has earned us a reputation for excellence. KDH consistently ranks among the top hospitals in Ontario for patient satisfaction. We serve a catchment area of 70,000 including portions of Ottawa south. Currently, we are actively recruiting new physicians to serve our growing community.

North Grenville has experienced strong economic growth in recent years, which is expected to continue. The municipality still offers a distinct rural flavour with easy access to urban amenities. North Grenville offers great shopping and dining opportunities. Several unique outdoor festivals and events take place each year in this busy, growing community.

We are 15 minutes from the historic village of Merrickville, “the Jewel of the Rideau,” which holds the title of one of the nation’s prettiest villages. There are over 50 shops and restaurants and many of the original stone houses and buildings still standing from the early 1800s. The 124-mile Rideau Canal System runs through North Grenville and connects Ottawa to Kingston.
