Juravinski Cancer Centre

Juravinski Cancer Centre exterior

Juravinski Cancer Centre (JCC) is a regional referral centre for central-west Ontario. With many patients coming from outside of Hamilton, the JCC collaborates with providers in the patient’s home community.

JCC is where cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation take place, as well groundbreaking cancer research. There are no overnight beds at the cancer centre. It is adjacent to Juravinski Hospital on Concession Street, with internal hallways linking the two.

Please note: The Juravinski Hospital driveway off Concession Street will be closed to vehicle traffic for construction from Tuesday, September 3 to Saturday November 30, 2019. The pedestrian walkway will remain open. View a map of pick up and drop off locations.
