Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Creating an environment where every person at Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) feels included, safe, and respected for who they are is key to living our values and achieving our vision of Best Care for All. That is why equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is a corporate priority within HHS’ Strategic Plan.

As a health care provider, embedding EDI in all that we do will enable us to provide more personalized care, and better understand and address barriers and factors that impact health outcomes and experiences for patients and families.

As an employer, becoming an organization that encourages and values diverse ideas and perspectives will help us attract and retain the best talent, become even more innovative, and get better at solving the complex problems our organization and sector face.

Becoming a safer, more equitable and inclusive organization involves every role, every team, every function, and every patient who comes to us for care. Learn more by reading our 2023-28 Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Plan, which outlines the steps we are taking to advance EDI over the next five years. With this plan as our guide, together we can create an HHS where equity, diversity and inclusion are foundational to the culture of our organization.

If you have feedback or ideas about EDI at HHS, or wish to share your own lived experience, you can reach out to inclusion@hhsc.ca.
