About the St. Catharines Site
The St. Catharines Site opened its doors on time and on budget on March 24, 2013, opening a window on the future of healthcare in Canada.
A replacement facility for the former St. Catharines General and Ontario Street sites, the St. Catharines Site is the community hospital for residents of St. Catharines, Thorold, Niagara-on-the-Lake and surrounding communities, and includes Emergency Department and Urgent Care services in one place.
In addition, the site also introduces much-needed regional services to Niagara in a state-of-the-art building, providing residents across the peninsula access to care closer to home.
Comprehensive cancer care — including radiation therapy — is available for the first time in Niagara through the hospital’s Walker Family Cancer Centre. Patients with cardiac illness can now be assessed at the Heart Investigation Unit, which offers diagnostic and interventional care, including cardiac catheterization and stents. People with mental health needs have access to an 81,000 square foot Mental Health and Addictions Department where they can receive longer-term mental health care.
The St. Catharines Site is the kidney care hub for dialysis patients, supported by satellite units in Welland and Niagara Falls, and provides a new model of health services for women, babies and children.
At nearly one million square feet, the comprehensive acute care hospital is a showcase of state-of-the-art technology and patient-centred design features that set a new standard for Canadian hospitals, help medical professionals provide better care and allow patients to better enjoy their stay.
