  St. Josephs Healthcare London

Building on more than 130 years of care and compassion, today’s St. Joseph’s Health Care, London continues to make a difference in health care with distinct roles in acute/ambulatory care, rehabilitation and specialized geriatrics, specialized mental health, complex care and veterans care, and long-term care. With more than 20 locations, St. Joseph’s Health Care offers nurses both the opportunity to specialize and to attain a variety of experiences in leading programs across a spectrum of services.

The rebuilding of London’s hospital system has brought significant new and exciting roles for St. Joseph’s nurses. For example, St. Joseph’s Hospital, which is shifting from an acute inpatient facility to ambulatory care and day surgery, recently opened the new state-of-the-art G.A. Huot Surgical Centre and Diagnostic Imaging Centre. And, we are preparing to build two new mental health sites: a specialized mental health facility in London and a forensic psychiatry facility in St. Thomas.

Our vision ... to be a respected source of excellent health service, guided by people we serve, provided by people who care.

As a faith-based organization, we have a healing mission encompassing each person’s physical, psychosocial and spiritual well-being.

Gerry Johnston, Regional Mental Health Care (2005)
