Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation, as part of Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, provides vital funding to enable the best possible patient care at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre. The Foundation inspires and motivates gifts that fund medical equipment and patient amenities, innovative research initiatives, essential redevelopment of clinical care spaces, and the education and training of health care providers.

Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre is one of Ontario’s most comprehensive cancer centres and the only site in south-central Ontario treating all cancers. It is one of three centres in Ontario providing all forms of stem cell transplants supporting patients with blood cancers. It is also home to the Regional Cancer Program, which coordinates cancer care with partners based across Hamilton, Brant, Haldimand, Niagara and Burlington.
