McMaster University Medical Centre

McMaster University Medical Centre exterior

McMaster University Medical Centre (MUMC) has a longstanding history of providing world-class healthcare to people within Hamilton and from across Ontario. In 1972 the centre opened in the Health Sciences Building, owned by McMaster University, where the university-hospital collaboration set the stage for a strong tradition of teaching future generations of healthcare providers.

The site is home to a range of adult specialty clinics and day surgery, as well as a nationally-recognized digestive diseases care and research program. Here, the Boris Clinic – the first of its kind in Canada – brings together several medical specialties under one roof to provide “one-stop shopping” to patients with multiple health needs.

MUMC also hosts one of Ontario’s largest labour & delivery programs and shares its campus with McMaster Children’s Hospital, providing seamless care for newborns who require additional hospital care after birth.
