The expertise and dedication of nearly 700 employees across Hamilton Health Sciences’ and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton’s labs contribute significantly to the ability to provide excellent care for our patients.

The labs perform more than 33,000 tests daily. There are 2,500 different tests that can be done on virtually any body fluid or tissue, bringing new challenges and surprises every day. Get Up Close with our labs here:
