Care matters here

Care matters here.

At St. Joseph’s we value every individual who comes to us for care, and we have been doing this since 1869. We are one of the best academic health care organizations in Canada, dedicated to helping people live to their fullest by minimizing the effects of injury, disease and disability while helping patients and their families find their voice and reclaim their health and independence to the best of their ability. We do this through medical research and innovation, that lead to new treatments that improve, extend and save lives. 

Following in the footsteps of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph, we deliver care with spirit as put we compassion at the forefront of all we do.

Care Matters Here, because You Matter Here.
