MCMASTER CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL (MCH) / BY PARKIN ARCHITECTS

McMaster Children’s Hospital (“MCH”) is one of the top pediatric academic health science centres in Canada and serves the special and unique healthcare needs of children using a family-centred model of care. Each year, MCH has approximately 180,000 visits to subspecialty clinics, diagnostic areas, emergency department, inpatient units and operating rooms.
