Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton Satellite Health Facility

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and Hamilton Health Sciences have collaborated to open a temporary Satellite Health Facility (SHF) at 150 King St. E. in downtown Hamilton.

This facility will accommodate patients who no longer require hospital care, but who need healthcare support until they transition to another location in the community.

As an extension of both hospitals, the SHF is staffed by an interprofessional team of healthcare providers and primary care physicians. As always, our goal is to provide quality care for patients in a safe setting, while supporting the needs of our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The SHF helps our hospitals:

  • Support patients who are waiting for care in the community;
  • Reserve hospital space for those with urgent medical needs;
  • Continue to reintroduce clinical services impacted by the pandemic;
  • Maintain capacity to care for COVID-19 patients should there be a surge in cases.

To contact a patient at the SHF, please call 905-522-1155, and provide the switchboard attendant with the name of the patient you wish to reach.

Take a virtual tour of the SHF below.
