The LHSC was formed in 1995 with the merger of University Hospital and Victoria Hospital. It is one of Canada’s largest acute care teaching facilities and it has a history stretching back over 135 years, which includes some pivotal medical breakthroughs. University Hospital itself opened in 1972 and quickly established a reputation for medical advances in fields such as neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, and transplantation. The reputation of the hospital for neurosurgey has attracted patients from around the world, mainly due to the pioneering work of Dr Charles Drake, who achieved international renown for inovative surgery for brain aneurysms.
