Welcome to Grand River Hospital's surgical program. We offer round-the-clock services in orthopedics, gynecology, cancer, plastic, and reconstructive and emergency surgery as well as a wide variety of general surgeries. Our surgeons perform approximately 10,000 procedures each year.
Most of our services are located at GRH’s KW Site, 835 King Street West in Kitchener.
- Patient registration for surgery is on the second floor of the C wing;
- The hospital’s operating rooms and other procedural rooms are also located on the second floor; and
- Our inpatient beds are located in the D wing of the hospital’s sixth floor if you wish to visit a patient who may be hospitalized as they recover from their operation..
Providing patient-focused care, we ensure that patients receive safe and consistent care from their physician's office right through to discharge from the hospital. Surgical team members include: physicians, nurses, pharmacists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, nutritionists, and many other staff who work closely with all departments of the hospital.
You are an important part of your care. Informed patients are better able to participate in their own care and recovery, and we invite and encourage you and your family to work in partnership with us to support your care and recovery.
