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 a one-stop-shop to patients with multiple health needs.

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