Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital is a local, full service hospital giving the community access to most of the key elements of health care. That includes:
Patient care has been further enhanced through the recent opening of a new multi-level wing at the Smiths Falls site. The wing, which opened in May 2010, contains three new state-of-the-art surgery rooms, a new intensive care unit, new and expanded Diagnostic Imaging Department, new post anesthetic care unit and new obstetrical unit, including four new birthing rooms. The renovation of the 1950s wing is now underway. Another new addition to the hospital in Smiths Falls is a CT scan unit.
