Regional Trauma Program

Hamilton Health Sciences supports two regional trauma centres, the Hamilton General Hospital for adult and pediatric trauma care, and McMaster Children’s Hospital for pediatric trauma care (15 years of age and under).

As tertiary trauma centres, the trauma program assumes a leadership role in the development, evaluation and continuous quality improvement of care for the Central South region. The trauma program is committed to evidence-based, patient-centred care; trauma-related education and research; and injury prevention.

The program collects and analyzes internal, regional and provincial data to report, monitor and optimize patient care and system development.
