Civic Hospital is a neighbourhood in Kitchissippi Ward in central Ottawa, Canada. It is named after the Ottawa Civic Hospital, which is located in the neighbourhood.

Civic Hospital is bounded on the west by Island Park Drive, on the north by the Queensway, on the east by Railway Street and on the south by Carling Avenue.

The population as of the Canada 2011 Census was 4,985.

Civic Hospital is primarily a residential neighbourhood; the Civic Hospital and a small number of office and commercial buildings line Carling Avenue along the area’s southern edge. It is known for its many high-quality “Younghusband” homes, built by David Younghusband between 1939 and 1947. Residents may belong to the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association, which organises events and activities to improve the community.

The main streets within the neighbourhood are Parkdale Avenue, Sherwood Drive, and Holland Avenue. The neighbourhood is served by Carling Station on the O-Train Trillium Line, frequent bus service on Holland and Parkdale Avenues that will connect to the Confederation Line at Tunney’s Pasture Station in 2018, and crosstown routes on Carling Avenue.

Civic Hospital schoolchildren may attend one of five elementary schools, St George (JK – Grade 6), Elmdale Public School (JK – Grade 6), Fisher Park Public/Summit Alternative School (Grades 7 -8), Devonshire Public School (JK – 6) and Connaught Public School (JK – 6), all of which are in adjacent neighbourhoods.
