Welcome To Hamilton Health Sciences

Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) is the only hospital system in Ontario providing specialty care to people throughout the entire life cycle, from pre-birth to old age. HHS serves the densely populated south central region of Ontario and is also a referral centre for patients from elsewhere in the province.

With five hospitals (Hamilton General Hospital, Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre, McMaster Children’s Hospital, St. Peter’s Hospital and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital) and six specialized healthcare facilities, HHS has the largest hospital-based workforce in Ontario: 15,000 staff, physicians and volunteers.

In addition to providing excellent patient care, Hamilton Health Sciences' mission includes advancing health care through education and research. In affiliation with McMaster University and other educational institutions, HHS is helping to train the next generation of caregivers. It has also become an international leader in hospital-based research and is recognized as one of the top four healthcare research institutions in Canada. More than 2,000 investigators and research staff at HHS work together to attract $170 million in research funding annually.
