We are so fortunate to live in an area with wonderful access to a large range of highly-specialized health-care services. Affiliated with Queen’s University, all three of Kingston’s hospitals play an essential role not only as the community hospitals for the Kingston area, but also as the tertiary (or very specialized) hospitals for the 500,000 people living in Southeastern Ontario, and even beyond.
In order to provide that wonderful level of care, Kingston’s hospitals have some of the country’s best clinicians and front-line care providers. As the organization designed to put the most up-to-date equipment into the hands of those providers and to help provide them with the best environment, and support for education and research, UHKF values the opportunity we have to link them with interested community members.
Because of You
We are pleased to share some recent presentations made by front-line care providers from Kingston’s hospitals at UHKF events. Topics are listed alphabetically. We will continue to update this page, so check back often!
