Update as of June 6, 2024

As a result of the Council meeting on May 9, 2024, the Town of Grimsby is no longer considering a request to rename West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) to West Niagara Memorial Hospital.


Over the past few months, we have worked closely with Lincoln and West Lincoln to engage the public on the matter. Ultimately, there was insufficient community support for the proposal, and Council voted in favour of keeping the name. As such, we will not be bringing a recommendation to HHS’ Board of Directors for a name change.


We are grateful for the community’s passion, support, and engagement throughout this process, and we look forward to the celebrating the milestones as we prepare to open the new hospital.



Background

We’ve heard you. Over the last two weeks, we’ve received feedback from several Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln community members. We are grateful for your passion and care towards the hospital as a cherished resource for our communities. We recognize that the current engagement was limited in scope and timing and apologize for this.

Some have expressed desire for more comprehensive public consultation about the request to rename the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH). The project team is pivoting to refine our current strategy and extend the time period for public engagement. The municipalities are working in collaboration with Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) and the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation (WLMHF) to bring this to fruition. All Council Members within Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln will also have the opportunity to discuss the proposed name change at each of the Council/Committee meetings.

While the municipalities continue to seek feedback from their respective residents through public engagement, HHS continues to conduct internal engagement with the WLMH workforce. This engagement is imperative to the decision-making process and will be ongoing into early spring 2024.

The partnering organizations will review the feedback received and discuss next steps in the early spring. Next steps could include further planning towards a name change or proceeding with the current name of ‘WLMH’. Ultimately, renaming the hospital requires approval by the HHS board of directors, as outlined by the Ministry of Health’s hospital renaming directive.

The collective goal is to have a site name that best serves the public interest and the role of the hospital providing excellent patient care. The public’s engagement in this process is vital to achieving this goal.


The New Hospital

West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH), a Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) hospital, is being rebuilt to accommodate the growing health care needs of west Niagara’s communities. Public support of the new hospital has been overwhelmingly positive, as local residents acknowledge this important endeavour and have demonstrated unwavering commitment to this redevelopment project.


Proposed New Name: West Niagara Memorial Hospital

The Mayors of the Town of Grimsby, Town of Lincoln, Township of West Lincoln and the Chair of Niagara Region have submitted a request to Hamilton Health Sciences to change the name of the new hospital to West Niagara Memorial Hospital. The municipalities, region, WLMH Foundation and HHS are sharing information about the process with the community in support of this request.

The proposed new name not only aims to better reflect the geography in which the hospital is located, but also more accurately represents the broader communities the hospital serves. Similarly, including “West Niagara” in the new name follows recent precedent in naming other community infrastructures, such as the West Niagara Secondary School and the West Niagara Agricultural Centre & Fairgrounds. Names not only identify, they provide historical connections and symbolize the communities in which they belong.

A decision about the new name for the hospital is expected to be made in spring 2024, and the new name will be effective upon the opening of the new hospital in mid-2025.

About the WLMH Rebuild

The WLMH redevelopment project is currently in the construction phase after breaking ground in spring 2022. The new hospital is being built directly behind the existing building located at 169 Main St. E, Grimsby.

WLMH provides both inpatient and outpatient services, including emergency services, complex and palliative care, surgery, and maternal and newborn care. The new hospital will be approximately 80 per cent larger than the existing hospital, and enhance patient capacity, comfort and care throughout.

The new, modernized facility will support the community’s evolving health care needs and the workforce’s ability to provide exceptional care. As a site of HHS, WLMH serves as a point of access to one of the largest health systems in Canada for patients requiring more specialized care.

  • Share Although I support a name change for our new hospital, I think the proposal and process in bypassing the community is flawed. WLMH has always been a community hospital. Citizens in Grimsby and area have strong feelings about making certain they support it financially and are vocal cheerleaders for its continued existence. It seems to me that the community should have been consulted about a name change. Are there any plans to include the community in future discussions about naming the new hospital? In my opinion, much of the blowback against changing the hospital’s name is because people are hurt and insulted about being completely sidelined in making this important decision. on Facebook Share Although I support a name change for our new hospital, I think the proposal and process in bypassing the community is flawed.

    Thank you for your comments. We’ve received feedback from several Grimsby , Lincoln, and West Lincoln community members and are grateful for your passion and care towards the hospital as a cherished resource for our communities. We recognize that the previous engagement was limited in scope and since then, we have taken proactive measures to account for this.

    The municipalities, in consultation with Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) and the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation, are currently facilitating public consultation by way of surveys to help inform the HHS Board of Directors in its decision about this request. Special Council Meetings will also be held by all 3 municipalities separately. More information about these Special Council Meetings will be made available on our Let’s Talk Grimsby page.

  • Share I support the new proposed name for the hospital. A new hospital is a hugely significant development for our town and our area. I think a new name signifies the forward-looking vision that over the decades has led to this wonderful accomplishment. Acknowledging history is important and retaining the word “Memorial” in the new name does that. West Niagara matches other recent new names like West Niagara High School. I understand that changing names strikes at the heart of who we think we are. It is an important decision, but for myself, a brand new building requires a brand new name. on Facebook Share I support the new proposed name for the hospital.

    Your feedback is important and thank you for your comments. 

    The proposed name aims to better represent the broader community the hospital serves and the geographical location of the hospital. Names not only identify, but they also provide historical connections and symbolize the communities in which they belong. Much thought has also been given to keeping “memorial” as part of the hospital name, as the word retains part of its history.

  • Share Comment: Please change the name. WLMH may be memorable for some, but public buildings should be clearly named and it isn't located in West Lincoln, which is a township. West Niagara also aligns with the West Niagara Secondary School naming protocol, so I like that it is consistent and clear. Nobody needs to get lost or confused when attending a hospital. on Facebook Share Comment: Please change the name.

  • Share WLMH is now part of Hamilton Health Sciences so why would it be changed to West Niagara. Just because the NDSB uses ‘Niagara’ does not mean everything now has to be labelled ‘Niagara’. For our hospital to be called West Niagara would be confusing when we are actually part of HHS. on Facebook Share WLMH is now part of Hamilton Health Sciences so why would it be changed to West Niagara.
