The Juravinski Hospital at Hamilton Health Sciences believes in treating the whole person,and that includes allowing our patients to have visits with their family dog or cat. We understand that our patients consider their pets to be family members and it brings comfort and joy to have them visit.

The Juravinski Hospital has partnered with Zachary’s Paws For Healing to give patients this additional visitor service.

We are so proud to be the first hospital in Canada that has such a patient / family pet visitation program.

Ask your nurse or social worker if your family member or friend is eligible for the pet to visit.
