Juravinski Hospital

Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre exterior

Juravinski Hospital, located on the brow of the Niagara escarpment, is best known as the host hospital for the Regional Cancer Program.

In addition to dedicated wards for cancer patients, Juravinski Hospital is also a general medical/surgical hospital with a community Emergency Department. Joint replacement surgery, e.g. hip or knee, commonly takes place at Juravinski Hospital.

The oldest part of Juravinski Hospital was opened in 1917 as Mount Hamilton Hospital.

Please note: The Juravinski Hospital driveway off Concession Street is closed to vehicle traffic for construction until Saturday November 30, 2019. The pedestrian walkway will remain open. The front parking lot of the Breast Assessment Centre (BAC) is also closed, however, two metered spots on Concession Street, directly in front of the BAC entrance, are designated for Breast Assessment Centre parking only. View a map of pick up and drop off locations.
