Kingston’s rankings fall this year from 37th in 2022, 36th in 2021 and 30th in 2020.

A news release from the Kingston Health Sciences Center on Wednesday said Kingston General Hospital continues to rank among the best hospitals in the country despite competing with larger city hospitals. There are more than 1,200 hospitals in Canada.

“What impresses me most is that despite significant challenges this year, KHSC continues to prove that we are a world-class institution in almost every way,” said KHSC President and CEO Dr. David Pichora in a written statement.

“We continue to operate two of the oldest hospital sites in Canada, so I can confidently say that this ranking isn’t just because we have the best facilities. This placement is directly attributable to our teams, who are absolutely among the best and most competent in the country.”

Pichora said KHSC is “truly unique” in the Canadian healthcare landscape, offering world-class care despite its size.

“We provide highly specialized care close to home for patients in the region, but we have also shown that we are a valuable resource to the rest of Ontario when called upon during the pandemic,” Pichora said.

KHSC’s press release said the organization has “continued to improve and expand services” for the region, including opening its breast imaging facility, expanding its kidney program, treating dozens of pediatric patients from across the province during the winter wave of respiratory viruses and expanding services for people with eating disorders and other achievements.

KHSC was also the first hospital in Canada to introduce an innovative contrast agent system for patients during CT scans and was recognized by Accreditation Canada as a “world-class regional stroke program.”

“In recent years, our ability to expand and innovate has brought people across the province to the fore,” Pichora said. “Together, KHSC has grown well beyond what we could ever have accomplished separately as Kingston General Hospital or Hotel Dieu Hospital, and we should all be very proud of what we have accomplished.”
