Hamilton’s hospitals are bursting at the seams.
Two of the city’s adult acute care hospitals are far over capacity while the third is close to full.
Overcrowding is the worst at Juravinski Hospital on Concession Street, which has eight per cent more patients than funded beds. St. Joseph’s Hospital on Charlton Avenue East is at 103 per cent capacity while Hamilton General on Barton Street East is at 99 per cent.
