The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) is a non-profit academic health research institute that is part of The Ottawa Hospital, and a major part of the University of Ottawa Faculties of Medicine and Health Science. It is one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in North America.[1]

Formed on April 1, 2001, by the merger of the Loeb Health Research Institute and the Ottawa Health Research Institute, the OHRI is a multi-campus facility. OHRI scientists are at work on an array of questions in the fields of cancer therapeutics; clinical epidemiology; diseases of ageing; hormones, growth, and development; molecular medicine; neuroscience, and vision.

The OHRI's mandate is to advance knowledge of health and disease on multiple fronts, ranging from increasing understanding of what is happening at the molecular and cellular level in complex disease states, to elucidating best practises in the delivery of health care.

The Ottawa Hospital’s Riverside Campus is one of three main campuses of The Ottawa Hospital[2] - along with the Civic and General campuses, and is the only campus that does not admit patients and has no emergency department. The facility operates for out-patient treatment and procedures during the day Monday - Friday.

The Riverside Hospital of Ottawa first opened in 1967[3] on Riverside Drive close to where the current General campus and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario is located on Symth Rd. On 1 April 1998[4] the hospital was amalgamated with the Civic Hospital and the General Hospital into The Ottawa Hospital.[5][6]

The hospital is also the Riverside station for OC Transpo.

The hospital is home to the Kidney Research Centre, a centre within the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. The centre was established in 2000 and is the first place in Canada dedicated to kidney research.[7][8]

In addition, the hospital is home to the Shirley E. Greenberg Women’s Health Centre. The centre is dedicated to research, education, and helping women improve their health.[9][10] The centre sees 30,000 patients a year.[11]
