A Message From Our CEO – Celebrating Our Loyal Donors

Over the last 10 years, donors have helped Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation contribute nearly $150 million toward patient care. And while 2020 has been a challenging year, our donors and the community at large have stepped up in heartwarming ways to support the frontline clinical teams as they provide vital care during the COVID-19 crisis.

Care for the End of Life

Palliative care specialists often collaborate with the Assisted Dying Resource and Assessment Service (ADRAS) to ensure that patients receive the best possible palliative care during the process of MAiD, or medical assistance in dying.
