Health Sciences Centre is a major tertiary (and to some degree quaternary) care referral centre for Winnipeg, Northern Manitoba, Nunavut, parts of rural Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. It was formed in 1973 through an amalgamation of the Winnipeg General Hospital, the Women's Hospital, the Children's Hospital of Winnipeg and the Rehabilitation Hospital of Manitoba. As a result, the Centre provides trainees with exposure to a wide range of acute and chronic medical problems, as well as to virtually all specialty and subspecialty areas of medicine. Major renovation and expansion was completed early 2007 with a new Emergency Room, new ICU's, and new operating rooms. This hospital serves a large core population and is the major referral centre for northern communities.
