Thank you for your interest in touring The Ottawa Hospital. We are inspired by research and driven by compassion. These tours will give you a behind-the-scenes look at some of the work done at the Rehabilitation Centre.

Please note pre-registration is required only for the Rehabilitation Virtual Reality Lab (RVR) tour. You can come visit the Rehabilitation Centre to view exhibits related to our programs and services on Saturday, June 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The tour and exhibits will provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the many programs and services offered at the Rehabilitation Centre including:

  • The Rehabilitation Virtual Reality Lab (RVR Lab) – The RVR Lab is one of two virtual reality labs located in Canada and resides at the hospital thanks to a partnership with the Canadian Forces. The lab houses the CAREN (Computer-Assisted Rehabilitation Environment) Extended System and is a state-of-the-art facility for physical rehabilitation assessment, therapy and research. The tour will demonstrate how people living with disabilities can use world-class rehabilitation virtual reality services to improve their mobility and balance.
  • Medical 3D Printing Program – The Ottawa Hospital is home to the first hospital based, multi-departmental Medical 3D Printing Program in Canada. The exhibit will show how the 3D printing program allows doctors to produce models for the planning and practice of complex surgeries, develop prosthetics for patients, and creates new research opportunities.
  • Augmentative Communication and Writing Service, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Prosthetics and Orthotics, Psychology Recreation Therapy, Rehab Engineering, Research, Speech Language Pathology, Social Work, Total Foot Care, and more.

The Ottawa Hospital currently serves 1.3 million people and is dedicated to providing world-class patient care.
