Interested in some additional amazing facts? The hospital has one of the province’s few rooftop heliports and is a Level 1 trauma centre for injured victims. The Hamilton General Hospital is also home to the Regional Rehabilitation Centre, which provides intensive therapy for patients recovering from a stroke, acquired brain injury, amputation, or spinal cord injury.
Many personal injury victims who are catastrophically injured are admitted to the Regional Rehabilitation Centre, where they benefit from expanded programs in a fully accessible state-of-the-art healing environment. The unit bridges directly to the hospital and its onsite patient resources, including an office of the Canadian Paraplegic Association, a pool, outpatient and occupational therapy clinics, and an outdoor therapeutic track, which is one of a kind in Canada.
We are proud to give to such a wonderful institution and Lalande Personal Injury Lawyers plans to continue donating each and every year.

Spinal Cord Injury Ontario (SCI Ontario), formerly known as Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario (CPA Ontario), is an organization whose mission is to help people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities achieve independence, self reliance, and full community participation.
A spinal cord injury, whether traumatic or non-traumatic, complete or incomplete, is a catastrophic injury with potentially devastating impacts. These include far-reaching physical, social, and psychological consequences.
From a traumatic perspective, while other types of injuries are more likely to result in death, spinal trauma can lead to life-changing disabilities that can permanently alter a person’s physical wellbeing and make what was once routine nearly impossible. These injuries can result from a wide variety of accidents and trauma, such as car accidents, falls, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, and trip-and-falls. Conversely, about 30 percent of all SCIs are non-traumatic, resulting from disease or pathological influence, congenital SCI, infections, ALS, MS, and the like.
SCI Ontario is an organization that helps individuals with spinal cord injuries by providing information on how to develop optimal resilience and a better quality of life, understand the rehabilitation process, and better self-management with appropriate care. SCI Ontario has sixteen offices across the province that provide quality-assured programs and services, including Peer Support, Regional Services, and Advocacy Programs.
