Located in central Hamilton since 1890, St. Peter’s Hospital (SPH) provides complex continuing care across four inpatient programs: palliative care, restorative rehabilitation, complex medical and behavioral. Outpatient clinics for diseases related to aging and the GERAS Centre for Aging Research, affiliated with McMaster University, is based at St. Peter’s. Although the SPH patient population is primarily older adults, each of the four programs also serve adults of all ages.
