Haldimand War Memorial HospitalThe Hospital opened February 3, 1920 with 20 beds, a small nursery, a small operating room and a portable x-ray machine, usedonly for fractures. Today we have 12 Long Term Care beds, 22 Acute CareBeds (including a new Palliative Care Room), and 2 Respite Care Beds. Our surgical services have expanded to include General Surgery, a variety of Laparoscopic procedures, Endoscopy, minor Urology and ENT procedures and basic Orthopaedic surgery. Our Diagnostic Imaging department has replaced that single x-ray machine with many services, such as: General Radiology, Gastrointestinal x-rays, I.V.P.s (kidney x-rays), Ultrasound examinations, Mammograms and Needle Localization, Operating Room Radiology, Bone Density, Electrocardiograms and Holter Monitors. Visiting specialists also hold clinics to provide a complete range of care for our community.
