A new study commissioned by the Canadian Partnerships Against Cancer and led by St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton researchers shows that there are "tremendous" differences between provinces regarding complications and death rates for patients undergoing high-risk cancer surgery.

Dr. Christian Finley, thoracic surgeon at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton and one of the study's lead authors, states that "patients requiring complex surgeries can benefit from having their procedure performed at a regional centre of excellence, where these types of surgery would be performed more often.” 

The Thoracic Surgery division at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton (SJHH) is one of the largest thoracic centres in Ontario.  We are the designated Regional Thoracic Centre for the Hamilton-Niagara-Haldimand-Brant Local Health Integration Network (LHIN 4), with a total service population of 1.8 million people.
