A Message From Our CEO Pearl Veenema

I wanted to take the time to share some updates with you. Never before has the issue of health and health care been so front and centre as with the current COVID-19 situation. The entire health care system is working hard to keep our communities healthy and safe. The dedicated teams at Hamilton Health Sciences are on the front lines of this crisis – and we are thankful for all of their tireless efforts. Now more than ever, It’s Vital to Care.
