An investigation is underway as gasoline and antisemitic messaging were found inside an area at the General Campus of the Ottawa Hospital (TOH).

In a statement to CityNews Ottawa, TOH officials said the incident took place on Thursday, Nov. 9 at a clinical area at the campus, which is located on Smyth Road.

A hospital spokesperson said an investigation has launched with the help of the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) and Ottawa Fire Services (OFS).

“A police investigation is underway, and they have indicated there is no risk to the safety of anyone in the hospital,” the statement from the hospital said.   

According to hospital officials, the affected areas are being cleaned, and some appointments have been rescheduled.

“As a hospital, we care for and treat everyone equally,” the statement said. “At TOH, there is absolutely no place for hatred, discrimination, antisemitism, or Islamophobia. The hospital condemns this deplorable act and will continue working closely with Police Services to hold those who are responsible accountable.”  

Security measures have been enhanced at all TOH campuses.
