Hamilton Health Sciences ranked second among Canada’s top research hospitals
On Oct. 28, 2015 Research Infosource released its annual report on the country’s most influential health research centres, validating HHS’ position as a significant force in the Canadian health research landscape. For the third year in a row, HHS ranked second nationally based on research activity and intensity (funding per researcher), second to Toronto’s University Health Network, with $212M of research in the latest year.
“The mission of research continues to be very integral to HHS,” says Renato Discenza, executive vice president of strategy & innovation, HHS. “These results are even more remarkable when we consider the increasingly challenging fiscal environment for research in Canada.”
Research at HHS is conducted across six hospital sites and six specialized healthcare facilities through a series of research institutes, research centres and research groups. State-of-the-art infrastructure supports bench to bedside and clinical research across the full spectrum of human health, from prenatal to aging sciences. This comprehensive and highly integrated environment promotes multidisciplinary collaboration and translates new discoveries into preventative strategies and efficient practices for patient care.
