Mac Moves Downtown!
How exciting is this? Yesterday, the city of Hamilton voted to support the implementation of a new McMaster Health Campus, located right downtown at the corner of Main and Bay. Many programs and departments will be located at the new campus, including the Department of Family Medicine, the family residency training program and a new family health clinic.
The campus will serve undergrad, grad and health science continuing education students, and will also be home to several essential services including the Hamilton Maternity Centre and the Shelter Health Network. This campus is a GREAT step forward, for many reasons. Not only will it provide a wealth of new family doctors for Hamilton residents, but it will encourage students to pop the campus bubble and explore downtown! For more information on the new campus, check out the story here.
