Redevelopment & Expansion Project

In 2012, we embarked on a multi-year revitalization project to expand and modernize our healthcare facility.  It included:

  • a joint partnership with McMaster University for the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre,
  • the construction of the new Patient Care Tower; and,
  • modernization to the existing hospital and surrounding campus.

The project is now nearing completion.

The Halton McMaster Family Health Centre (HMFHC)

In 2015, we opened the HMFHC, a modern and equipped space shared by McMaster University and our hospital's administration. The building is attached to a new four-storey parking facility with over 820 new spaces.

We've been recognized for executing the LEED framework during the Redevelopment & Expansion Project.
