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. The Foundation team is now under one roof, which enables more efficient and strategic collaborations. The move is the next chapter in The Foundation’s journey of collaborating with donors and partners to transform health care.

“We have so many wonderful memories connecting with patients and community partners,” says Pearl Veenema, President & CEO of Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation. “Our new space will help us attain an exciting new level of community engagement as we create more wonderful memories into the future.”
