Listen to Dr. Andrew Falconer, CEO & President, Queensway Carleton Hospital, and other hospital and Foundation team members speak to Sam Laprade, from An Hour to Give (1310 News), about our hospital, our current needs, and our amazing community of supporters.
Dr. Bhaskar Gopalan, Chief & Medical Director, Emergency Medicine, Queensway Carleton Hospital
Hear Dr. Gopalan speak on Queensway Carleton Hospital’s Emergency Department – one of the busiest in Ottawa.
“In the early 2000’s when our new emergency department was built, it was designed to serve a volume of 180 patients a day. Today, we see a volume of 230 patients a day. The population in Kanata, Barrhaven, Stittsville and surrounding areas has really risen over the last 10-15 years. Over the years we’ve had many innovative ideas to make the experience of the patient very efficient and make sure that they are getting care in the right area that they deserve to be in. ”
