Our Leadership

A Message from Leadership


At St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, we are on a path of recovery from the impact of the pandemic by blending science and education, and our healthcare workers’ compassion to provide the best quality care to our patients, and the community we serve. 

We recognize the length and enormity of the pandemic has taken a heavy toll on us – like all hospitals.  

In the current challenging economic environment, we are also focused on ensuring St. Joe’s continues to be fiscally responsible, so we can invest in our people, equipment and facilities, while improving the care experience and health outcomes of our patients.    

With a clear mission, dedicated leadership team, our strong culture of teamwork, and proud history of facing and overcoming challenging times, St. Joe’s will continue to accomplish great things. 

And we’re starting here and now – and we welcome you to join in our pursuit.
