McMaster Children's Hospital (MCH) is a pediatric academic health science centre serving the special and unique healthcare needs of children and youth using a family-centred model of care.  Founded in 1988, MCH has rapidly become a leader in pediatric evidence-based care, collaborative research and innovative leading-edge education. 


McMaster Children's Hospital is home to 165 acute care beds and 10 day beds, 80 subspecialty clinics, a Children's Treatment Centre and one of the largest and most impressive Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Canada. Each year MCH has over 210,000 patient encounters in our subspecialty clinics, diagnostic areas, emergency department, inpatient wards and operating rooms. 

McMaster Children's Hospital recognizes that children's health needs are unique and that the development of optimum health in childhood can prevent other conditions of poor health later in life.
