McMaster University Medical Centre

McMaster University Medical Centre (MUMC), which is located next to McMaster University in west Hamilton, has one of Canada's most innovative Digestive Diseases programs, as well as the nationally recognized McMaster Children's Hospital. In addition, MUMC delivers a wide range of Women's Health services, including high-risk Obstetrics and Gynecology. Currently, major redevelopment is occurring at MUMC to nearly 20 percent of the existing site (approximately 125,000 net square feet). The centre will be redeveloped into a state-of-the-art facility to accommodate the growth of McMaster Children's Hospital, as well as to expand inpatient, outpatient and pediatric emergency services.

Our department of Diagnostic Imaging at MUMC services the above programs. We have full and part-time radiology faculty, as well as several faculty members cross-appointed from Obstetrics and Gynecology. Fellowship trained faculty expertise includes chest, body, interventional, musculoskeletal, neuroradiology and obstetrical imaging. The department houses a 1.5 T MR unit, 2 multi slice CTs, 2 active interventional suites, a large ultrasound department, as well as fluoroscopic and general imaging facilities. We are fully PACS integrated and work with voice recognition software. The department has close links with Pediatric and Adult clinical services.

Chedoke Hospital houses non-acute care programs in a campus setting on Hamilton's west mountain. A number of HHS' adult rehabilitation programs including a comprehensive Acquired Brain Injury program, a leading Prosthetics and Orthotics Department as well as several McMaster Children's Hospital (MCH) outpatient services are located at Chedoke. As redevelopment continues at many of HHS hospital locations, Chedoke will become a major support site for non-acute care programs and hospital administration. This site is not currently utilized for our postgraduate education programs.


Juravinski Hospital

Formerly known as the Henderson Hospital, the Juravinski Hospital is the region's center of excellence for cancer and orthopedic care. Over the next few years, nearly three quarters of the existing hospital (approximately 425,000 square feet) will be redeveloped to accommodate upgraded services for the Juravinski Cancer Centre (JCC), the hospital's large Arthroplasty Program and general hospital services. With this redevelopment, the Juravinski Hospital will further expand it's highly regarded orthopedic program. It will continue to service the JCC, which represents the most comprehensive cancer care and research facility in the Central South/Central West region. The JCC is close to completing a large expansion, making it the second largest cancer centre in Ontario and fifth largest in North America.

Our department of Diagnostic Imaging at the Henderson Hospital services the above programs. In August 2010, we moved into a new facility with upgraded equipment. The entire hospital redevelopment is expected to be completed in 2012. This offers exciting imaging opportunities, with a new department configuration and resources. We have a 3.0 T MR, 2 multi slice CTs, ultrasound, interventional and general imaging suites. Our faculty members have expertise and fellowship training in oncology/cross-sectional imaging, body imaging, musculoskeletal, interventional and breast imaging. We have a close working relationship with our clinical colleagues and offer teaching and training experiences for undergraduate medical students, residents and clinical fellows.
