"We have a bold vision of the future, something that everyone at HHS - staff, volunteers, physicians - has a part in achieving."
Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) has endless stories to tell – from the daily miracles that happen in patient care and the ground-breaking advancements uncovered through research, to the “aha” moments achieved in training tomorrow’s generation of healthcare leaders. We’re changing lives every day.
This report looks beyond what we’re doing today and captures the transformative moves we are making to reshape HHS. It’s not just about the hospital we are now, but the hospital we’re building together for the future.
We’re very proud of our people and the work done at HHS to deliver exceptional care to people within three Local Health Integration Networks and in some cases, to the whole province.
We also know that we have big challenges to confront, due to changing demographics and healthcare needs, as well as our own aging facilities and equipment. The initiatives you will read about in this report are, in part, our response to those challenges.
We have a bold vision of the future, one that everyone at HHS – staff, volunteers, physicians – has a part in achieving. We are also forging closer relationships with our community partners, because we know that meeting our challenges will require a team effort.
Together, we’re reshaping HHS for the future. Thank you for your part in it.
