Founded in 1848, Hamilton General Hospital (HGH) was the first hospital in Hamilton. It is home to a number of Hamilton Health Sciences’ key regional referral programs.

The cardiac and vascular program performs more heart surgeries and procedures than any other facility in the province.

The neurosciences and trauma program is a provincial leader in both volume and complexity of care provided.

The stroke program has pioneered an integrated approach to care, and the burn treatment program is one of only two in Ontario.

In addition to providing leading-edge care, HGH is strongly connected to its neighbourhood and supports outreach activities aimed at helping to enhance the quality of life in the surrounding community.
