Re: Henderson General Hospital name change

Hamilton Health Sciences is very committed to paying tribute to the memory of Nora Frances Henderson and her legacy of leadership and caring.

We have been working for the past year with members of the community and the Hamilton Mountain Heritage Society to ensure that everyone who passes through our facility has an opportunity to learn about Ms. Henderson's remarkable life. With the society's help, we have developed a museum-quality installation that will be centrally located in the wing that will bear her name. The exhibit will be unveiled later this year and we know it will help us all remember her unique contributions to Hamilton.

When the current construction work at the hospital is complete in 2011, most of the building will be brand new and its new name will be the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre.

The decision to rename the facility was made by Hamilton Health Sciences's board of directors in September 2006 and, as we told media at the time, we believe this is a fitting way to recognize Margaret and Charles Juravinski for their landmark donations to Hamilton health care.

In total, the Juravinskis have given $43 million to help fund various projects across the community including $15 million to support the redevelopment of the Henderson Hospital.

Over the past few years, the Juravinski Cancer Centre name has become synonymous with leadership and excellence in cancer care, treatment and research right across this region, the province, the country and internationally as well. We are building on this incredible momentum and reputation by bringing the whole Concession Street site under one name.

Margaret and Charles Juravinski have helped ensure that we will all have access to modern hospital facilities in the years ahead. Our board is extremely grateful to them for that remarkable gift.

We're also grateful for the contributions Nora Frances Henderson made to our community and for her dedication to civic issues. Both incredible legacies will live on at our hospital.

Since Ms. Henderson was a long-standing city councillor, we would like the City of Hamilton to consider recognizing her commitment to this community as well, perhaps through the honorary naming of a street, park or city building.
