CKHA has two campuses, one in Chatham and the other in Wallaceburg. If you have a medical emergency, you may go directly to one of these hospitals, with your OHIP card and photo ID (examples: a driver’s license or permanent resident card). In Chatham-Kent, you may also dial 9-1-1 for emergency service and assistance. 9-1-1 service is free of charge, although you may be charged a fee for transportation by ambulance.

CKHA was recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers in 2009 and 2010, and continues to be a quality health care workplace. Click here for information about joining the CKHA team.
