Women’s and Children’s Health Program

Humber River is proud to offer a family-centred environment with services and facilities that promote our family-centred approach to care. As a designated Regional Paediatric Centre, Humber River’s Women’s and Children’s Health Program is committed to protecting the lives of newborns, children and their families.

Operating on two sites, the Program delivers close to five thousand babies each year and is a regional leader in women’s and children’s health care. We are pleased to adjust plans of care to accommodate the cultural diversity of our patients, our community and beyond. In paediatrics, families are encouraged to be involved in health-care decisions together with their children. Our Hug and Hold Program – the first of its kind in Ontario – is representative of our family-centred approach to delivering quality and safe care.

Our Women’s and Children’s Health Program is grateful for the support we receive from many community sponsors and organizations, including Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Starlight Foundation.

These partnerships enable us to deliver on-going quality care for the whole family.
