Leeds, Grenville and Lanark health unit moving to new site in Kemptville

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (LGLDHU) is set to relocate its service delivery site in Kemptville. The current location on Concession Road at the Kemptville Hospital will cease operations on Nov. 17 at 4:30 p.m. The new site, situated at 80 Shaver Cres. in the Kemptville Campus, will officially open its doors on Nov. 29 at 8:30 a.m.

The announcement was made by Medical Officer of Health, Linna Li, who expressed the unit’s commitment to serving North Grenville. “The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has been serving North Grenville for decades, with public health services being delivered in a number of different sites over the years,” she stated. “We are pleased to have leased space from the Campus to continue to provide many of our services.”

During the transitional period from Nov. 20 to 29, the Health Unit aims to minimize service disruptions. Notably, the Sexual Health Clinic and Immunization Clinic services will not be available in Kemptville during this time. Alternative locations, such as the Smiths Falls office, are suggested for these services. Clients requiring infant feeding appointments can call 1-800-660-5853 x2467 to make arrangements.

Preschool speech and language services will be temporarily affected, with in-person visits suspended from Nov. 17 to 28. Some clients may receive virtual consultations or be directed to alternative locations, with regular in-person visits set to resume at the new site on November 29.
