A second home – that’s how many patients and their families refer to Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre. Through their health care journeys, they come to know it as a place that they can trust and feel safe in during the most difficult times in their life.
When a child’s life is threatened, our medical professionals have the expertise to offer world-class care in more than 30 different medical specialties and sub-specialties. They are committed to excellence and continue to train in the latest techniques while striving to foster a family-centred atmosphere that anticipates their patients’ needs.
Children’s Hospital serves a vast area, including Southwestern Ontario and parts of Northern Ontario. More than half of all patients come from outside of London. Our highly-skilled transport team utilizes leading-edge technology and specialized medical protocols to fly into communities to bring children to life-saving care.
