Norfolk General Hospital is a general hospital in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada; the only one in Norfolk County. The hospital was founded in 1925. It became an official teaching site for McMaster University's Faculty of Health Sciences in 2009. Like many hospitals, it has a charitable foundation which helps to fund its capital acquisitions and various programs.
Norfolk General Hospital is equipped with 106 beds and a helipad. Recent improvements include expansion of the emergency room and installation of CT scan equipment. Doctors with hospital privileges include specialists and surgeons. The hospital also houses a nursing home for the elderly and the severely handicapped.
Recent economic problems have forced the hospital to close three beds, making some nursing jobs redundant. A lack of demand, attributed to more seniors staying at home, was also cited as a reason for the closure.
