Our Family of Hospitals

With five hospitals (Hamilton General Hospital, Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre, McMaster Children’s Hospital, St. Peter’s Hospital and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital) and six specialized healthcare facilities, HHS has the largest hospital-based workforce in Ontario: 15,000 staff, physicians and volunteers. Hamilton Health Sciences is the second largest hospital group in Ontario, and serves as a regional referral centre for cardiac, stroke, burns, trauma, neurosurgery, pediatrics, digestive diseases, high-risk obstetrics, cancer, orthopedics and rehabilitation services.

As an academic teaching hospital with more than 1,100 beds and an affiliation with McMaster University and Mohawk College, Hamilton Health Sciences is committed to providing exemplary health care while advancing excellence in education and health research. The organization’s exceptional track record of inquiry and innovation has earned Hamilton Health Sciences recognition as one of the world’s leading health science research organizations.

Staff of Hamilton Health Sciences share a commitment to providing the best possible care to our patients and their families. Guided by our values of respect, caring, innovation and accountability, Hamilton Health Sciences is focused on uniting the best health care has to offer and ensuring our patients have access to the type of care they need when they need it most.

The breadth and scope of services offered by HHS, in combination with the hospital's focus on academics and research, make it an employer of choice for many people.  Physicians, nurses and clinicians find it attractive to work in HHS' diverse environment where they can be part of a health care team focused on providing the best possible care to patients and their families. Non-medical professionals enjoy bringing their varied talents and skills to a field where priorities are driven by care, not profit.
