Located in central Hamilton, St. Peter's Hospital (SPH) provides complex continuing care across various inpatient program including palliative care, restorative rehabilitation, complex medical and behavioral care. Our Medically Complex Care unit is a large 63-bed unit. Our interdisciplinary team provides care for adult patients following their acute phase of care, who have multiple or complex medical needs which may include tracheostomies and complex wounds. Medically Complex patients require interventions to obtain medical optimization in order to prepare them for discharge back to the community. The longer length of stay allows nurses to get to know their patients as persons and form professional working relationships with both the patient and their family. Educational opportunities are plenty, and since we host many students from several disciplines, there are opportunities to become a preceptor. We offer a friendly team environment.
