The Cape Breton Regional Hospital opened its doors in 1995, after a decade of fundraising and lobbying. Now, it is the second largest acute care facility in Nova Scotia, with more than 200,000 patient visits each year.
The Cape Breton Regional Hospital is here for all Cape Bretoners. It is the only hospital in the province to treat patients of all ages, from their first breath to their last.
Wherever you live now, if you are from Cape Breton, your family or loved ones will rely on the Regional Hospital at some point in their life.
