St. Joseph's Hamilton Joint Boards of Governors
A Message from Mr. Peter Tice, Chair
On behalf of the St. Joseph's Hamilton Joint Boards of Governors (JBG) I wish to welcome you to the St Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton website. Our organization is guided by the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph who have provided us with the framework to continue their work. Their passion for healing, their dedication to all those we serve and their compassion for the poor and marginalized provide the inspiration for our efforts.
We are dedicated to providing our community with high quality, accessible and safe healthcare and work continuously to improve the results and outcomes for our patients and families. By focusing on the patient’s journey through our health system, from hospital to home or to long-term care, we consistently strive to eliminate barriers and gaps that occur in today’s health care environment.
Working together with our staff of dedicated professionals, the JBG is focused on improving the experiences and outcomes of the people we serve at our locations, through both research and the delivery of our services. While many exciting projects are in process in our organization, we are most gratified when we can offer our patients and their families seamless, effective, safe and compassionate care.
St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton has been caring for the region of Hamilton with milestones, miracles and discoveries for more than 125 years! From the first kidney transplant performed by Dr. Knight and Dr. Tsai in 1970, to opening Hamilton's first Youth Wellness Centre in 2015 for youth to receive expert care for mental health and addiction issues, St. Joe's has earned a national reputation for outstanding patient care and innovative medical and surgical treatments.
I look forward to working with all of our partners to improve the quality of care we provide.
