The Museum of Health Care in Kingston, Ontario is located on the site of the Kingston General Hospital - the oldest hospital in Canada. The museum is home to a large collection of artifacts that illuminate the history of health and healthcare, including medical instruments, nursing uniforms, anatomical charts, advertisements for homeopathy, and much more. In their online catalog, visitors can browse hundreds of digitized items by topic (including archival material, dental, psychiatry, and tuberculosis sanitarium, to name just a few). Alternatively, visitors may search the catalog by field, including object name and medical subject heading (MeSH). Visitors may also want to explore two digitized special collections: The Crawford Canadian Dental Collection and a collection from the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. In addition, the page entitled From the Collection features highlights from this catalog and accompanying materials that may be of interest.
