Share this story

Queen’s University, in partnership with the Kingston General Hospital, the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science, has opened the W.J. Henderson Centre for Patient-Oriented Research. The new centre positions Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC), Queen’s University and the KGH Research Institute as international leaders in partnering with patients to improve health knowledge and outcomes.

The state-of-the-art centre brings together for the first time the facilities, equipment and research projects that require direct patient involvement into a single space. Located within KHSC’s Kingston General Hospital site and adjacent to the Queen’s University campus, the facility is situated to give clinician-scientists, researchers, and research volunteers a safe and accessible environment where patients can be consulted, assessed and monitored as they take part in research studies.

“This new centre will strengthen the collective efforts of Kingston’s world-class scientific community and ultimately provide patients with improved health care and quality of life.”
