St. Joseph's Health System

Founded in the healing mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Hamilton, St. Joseph's Health System was established in 1991 to meet the challenges of the changing environment for delivery of health and social services and takes pride in a system-wide commitment to caring for the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

Today, we are one of the largest corporations in Canada devoted to health care. Our member organizations each offer services according to their strengths, from acute care, long-term care, and community care, to rehabilitation, hospice, community outreach, and mental health.

Members benefit from System affiliation in many ways: strength in a shared mission and values, group buying power, research and information sharing through St. Joseph's Health System Research Network, and increased employment opportunities for staff.

We live our mission every day in the way we treat the people we serve, and each other. Genuine compassion and caring - it's what we're known for, locally and around the world.
