Operated by Health PEI, the hospital opened in 1982, resulting in the closure of the Charlottetown Hospital and the Prince Edward Island Hospital. It is named in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The QEH is located on a large forested campus originally known as Falconwood Farm in the northeast corner of the city adjoining the neighbourhoods of East Royalty and Sherwood, overlooking the Hillsborough River. The Hillsborough Hospital is a psychiatric hospital located on the same campus.
The QEH is a full-service health care facility that provides community services to residents of Queens County and is a major referral centre for specialty services for residents across Prince Edward Island.
Some of the services that the QEH offers:
- Ambulatory care
- Surgery/Day surgery
- Neonatal nursing/Neonatal ICU
- Radiology/MRI/CT Scan/Nuclear Medicine/Mammography
- Stroke unit
- PEI Cancer Treatment Centre
- Internal Medicine/Endoscopy/Colonoscopy/Bronchoscopy
- Special services (Pulmonary Function Testing, Blood collection, ECG/EEG, Holter monitor)
In 1999 the Progressive Conservative government of Pat Binns added the Prince Edward Island Cancer Treatment Centre to the facility at the QEH, which was expanded in 2003. At the same time, the main entrance to the QEH off Riverside Drive was upgraded and the emergency department was expanded.
