The W.J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Care
Imagine a research environment that brings scientists, treatment teams, patients and families together to improve health care. The W.J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research, slated to open in 2016, will house a multidisciplinary hub for researchers and practitioners across the continuum of care. Our new centre will foster a spirit of collaboration and investigation, attracting top scientists and providing facilities that make it easy for community members and patients to participate in research activities.
