Hamilton General Hospital Foundation, as part of Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, provides vital funding to enable the best possible patient care at Hamilton General Hospital, including the Regional Rehabilitation 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.

Hamilton General Hospital is home to the highest volume cardiac surgical centre and integrated stroke programs in Ontario. It is also one of only two adult regional burn centres and the second busiest trauma program. Co-located at the Hospital is the Regional Rehabilitation Centre, which provides intensive therapy for patients recovering from a stroke, acquired brain injury, amputation or spinal cord injury.
