Located on Maplewood Avenue in central Hamilton since 1890, St. Peter’s Hospital provides complex continuing care. It provides four inpatient programs: palliative care, restorative rehabilitation, complex medical and behavioural. Outpatient clinics for diseases related to aging and the GERAS Centre for Aging Research, affiliated with McMaster University, are also based at St. Peter’s. The patient population is primarily older adults, although each of the four programs serves adults of all ages.
