Founded in the healing mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Hamilton, the St. Joseph’s Health System (SJHS) was established in 1991 to meet the challenges of the changing environment for delivery of health and social services. The SJHS takes pride in its system-wide commitment to caring for the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
Today, the SJHS is one of the largest corporations in Canada devoted to healthcare. Member organizations of the SJHS offer a range of services according to our unique strengths, from acute care, long term care, and community care, to rehabilitation, hospice, community outreach, and mental health.
Members benefit from System affiliation in many ways: strength in a shared mission and values, group buying power, research and information sharing through St. Joseph’s Health System Research Network, and increased employment opportunities for staff.
As a SJHS member organization, St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph lives out its mission every day in the treatment, care, and service provided to all clients.
