Lives Transformed

Every day in the six hospitals and cancer centre of Hamilton Health Sciences lives are transformed – with help from you.

Here we share with you the stories of patients and their families — and the donors who help to support their care. Stories like these unfold in our hospitals every minute of every day. They keep us striving to deliver the best health care possible. Each year donors help us take-up that challenge, and we are grateful. We invite you to read stories from both our patients and donors:

We also invite you to review our Annual Donor Report, where we provide an overview and highlights of how donor dollars supported patient care, as a result of your gifts.
