Who We Are

London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), one of Canada’s largest acute-care teaching hospitals, is dedicated to excellence in patient care, teaching and research. Since 1875, we have provided patient care for the people of London, the region, and beyond. Many national and international medical breakthroughs have been pioneered at LHSC, to the benefit of patients at home and around the world. Through our affiliation with Western University and more than 30 other educational institutions, we train more than 1,800 medical and health care professionals annually.   

Today, LHSC is home to:

  • University Hospital and Victoria Hospital
  • Byron Family Medical Centre and Victoria Family Medical Centre
  • CSTAR (Canadian Surgical Technologies & Advanced Robotics)

Our physicians, residents and staff number nearly 15,000 and together they provided care for more than one million patient visits each year.

The generosity and vision of the people we serve is a cornerstone for our progress—yesterday, today and tomorrow. They give selflessly through the Children’s Health Foundation and London Health Sciences Foundation to strengthen and enhance our resources, building the future of health care.
