Haliburton Highlands Emergency Departments and Hospital Services

Haliburton Highlands Emergency Health Services

Minden and Haliburton Hospital Emergency Departments each provide 24 hours/day, 7 days per week of emergency care.  The Emergency Departments are staffed with physician’s on-call, nurses and medical radiation technologists.

The Haliburton site provides the County with a 15 bed in-patient department for patients requiring admission to a hospital bed.  In-patient hospital oversight and care is provided by physicians from the Haliburton Highlands Family Health Team ( www.hhfht.com ) and the HHHS staff.

The facilities at Minden and Haliburton were constructed in the year 2000 and continue to receive upgrades and new equipment by donations through the Auxiliaries and the HHHS Foundation.    pdf Geothermal  and solar units were installed at both sites to reduce utility costs and decrease our ecological footprint.  As a result, HHHS was one of five hospitals in Ontario awarded for environmental excellence at the OHA Health Achieve conference in November 2013.

Both sites offer a diverse interdisciplinary team of nurses, physicians, physiotherapists, laboratory technologist and medical radiation technologists. We work closely with our community partners to provide care and promotion of health before, during and after hospitalization. (Partners)
