Message from the Chair

The amazing generosity shown by our volunteers and donors during our fundraising campaign for London Health Sciences Centre is already making an impact at our hospital.

In Cancer Care, we’ve started leading-edge translational cancer research that we can apply directly to patient care.

In Cardiac Care, we’ve opened a new cardiac electrophysiology lab that will provide higher-quality diagnostic images to improve patient care.

In Women’s Care, we’ve opened a Continence Clinic designed to provide faster assessments, education and treatment to women waiting to see a urogynecologist. 

In Orthopaedic Care, we’ve started to shift the culture around concussion in sport in an effort to reduce the incidence of concussion and improve care through research.

In Mental Health Care, we listened to youth and worked with partners in the community to open a self-referred, peer-supported program to improve mental health and addictions care for youth aged 16 to 25.

And we even began Canada’s first hospital-wide implementation of Personalized Medicine, which uses the genetic differences between individuals to provide the right dose of the right drug at the right time. 

LHSC did all these things – and will continue to do things that change health care and change lives – with your help, so thank you.
