The Ottawa Hospital is the primary level one trauma center providing coverage for eastern Ontario, western Quebec, and Nunavut. The Orthopaedic Trauma Service at The Ottawa Hospital provides a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to ensure each patient receives the treatment they need to optimize outcomes and avoid complications. We treat over 2000 injuries annually at all 3 adult campuses, with the Civic Campus receiving all the multi-system trauma patients and the vast majority of patients with multiple orthopaedic injuries. Subspecialized orthopaedic trauma care is also provided at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Patients with multi-system injuries are admitted to the Intensive Care Unit or Trauma Unit at the Civic Campus with care supervised by General Surgery and orthopaedics directing the care of musculoskeletal injuries. Patients with isolated musculoskeletal injuries are triaged and either admitted for surgery or treated through our outpatient surgical system.
