The Juravinski Cancer Centre (JCC) is a comprehensive centre for cancer care and cancer research in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Operated by Hamilton Health Sciences, it is adjacent to the Juravinski Hospital, which provides emergency department facilities.

Juravinski Hospital and Juravinski Cancer Centre compose a full-service general hospital offering cancer care and orthopedics. The combination of inpatient and outpatient programs supports one of the largest comprehensive cancer centres in Canada, including community-based oncology clinics in Brantford and Burlington. The site's programs range from prevention, screening, and diagnosis to treatment including chemotherapy and the region's only radiation therapy program. The latter makes JCC a tertiary care centre for Ontario.

History

The site was redeveloped in 2010 and renamed Juravinski Hospital for Charles Juravinski, former owner of the Flamboro Downs racetrack. He donated $43-million to Hamilton city hospitals along with his wife Margaret.1

Fundraising

The Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation raises funds to support the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre including: capital projects, equipment, research, fellowship, education, hospital programs and patient amenities.
