New Foundation Office

On May 1, Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation moved to its new office space on the seventh floor of the Commerce Place building at 1 King St. W. The move to Hamilton’s downtown core is bolstering The Foundation’s ability to support outstanding patient care across Hamilton Health Sciences.

Historically, Foundation staff was stationed across multiple sites across the city, including the previous office space at 40 Wellington St. N.
