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.
