The hospitals serving Waterloo are all located in neighbouring Kitchener. There is Grand River Hospital, which includes the K-W and Freeport health centres (formerly independent hospitals that amalgamated in April 1995), and St. Mary’s General Hospital.

Note that Waterloo Region, like many other areas in Ontario, has a shortage of doctors, so finding one can be difficult.
