Decision on Proposed Hospital Renaming

Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) has advised the Mayors of Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln, as well as the regional chair of Niagara, that at this time the hospital is no longer considering their request to rename West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) to West Niagara Memorial Hospital. 

We extend our sincere thanks to the Lincoln community, especially to the many community members who shared their thoughts through various public engagement opportunities. We believe that this decision accurately reflects the feedback we collectively received. 

Many thanks also to the team from Hamilton Health Sciences and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation for their collaboration over the last several months in engaging community members.  

Lincoln community members and surrounding communities have much to look forward to in the coming months as the construction of this important community resource nears completion. Once again, thank you to community members and to the Province of Ontario for your contributions to this new facility that will serve the healthcare needs of our residents.
