The Cape Breton Regional Hospital touches all of our lives—at every stage and every age. Whether we are undergoing surgery, taking our child for an x-ray or rushing to the emergency department with a sick loved one – our hospital is always there for us.
The Regional Hospital opened its doors in 1995, after a decade of hard work and generous support from our community. Today, it is the second largest acute care facility in Nova Scotia.
In fact, did you know that the Cape Breton Regional Hospital is the only hospital in our Province to offer all of the following services under one roof?
- Neonatal intensive care
- Renal dialysis
- Intensive care
- Coronary care
- Palliative care
- Mental health and addiction services
- Emergency medicine
- Cancer care
This is a huge accomplishment and it is all thanks to the support from generous donors.
As the major referral centre for Cape Breton, the Regional Hospital treats more than 100,000 patients each year, providing acute and trauma care, emergency services, clinical services, and surgery.
The Regional Hospital has a dedicated staff of more than 1,800 health care providers who work with 270 hospital and community-based physicians.
The Cape Breton Regional Hospital is also a teaching hospital. As a proud partner with the Dalhousie School of Medicine’s Family Medicine Program, the Regional Hospital trains and recruits many new doctors each year.
