Joseph Brant Hospital
Named after Thyandenegea (Joseph Brant), an early inhabitant of Burlington and a member of the Grand River tribe of the Mohawk Nation, the Hospital has been a community anchor since 1961. The Hospital provides a full suite of healthcare services, including medical, surgical, maternal and child care, emergency and ambulatory, rehabilitation and geriatric, as well as mental health services to the City of Burlington and surrounding communities, which total over a quarter million inhabitants.
Since 2012, Joseph Brant Hospital began a multi-year revitalization program to expand and modernize. The plan included a joint partnership with McMaster University for the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre, which opened in 2015, the construction of the new Patient Care Tower, which opened in 2017, and modernization to the existing hospital and surrounding campus, which is anticipated to be complete by fall 2018.
The revitalization project includes sustainability elements as a cornerstone to each phase. The Halton McMaster Family Health Centre achieved Gold certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program in 2017, while the new Patient Care Tower is targeting Silver certification in early 2019.
