Overview[edit]

The Janeway is the only children's hospital in the province and functions, in partnership with St. John's General Hospital and Health Sciences Centre, as a teaching hospital for the Memorial University of Newfoundland Faculty of Medicine.

The facility was founded as the Dr. Charles Alderson Janeway Child Health Centre in 1966 using the former base hospital on the recently closed Pepperrell Air Force Base in the east end of the city. It was named after Charles Alderson Janeway, a pediatrician who is credited with helping to establish the hospital. The name of the facility was modified to its present form in 2001 when a new state-of-the-art facility was opened as an annex of the Health Sciences Centre. Demolition of the old facility located in the former Pepperrel AFB started in September 2008 by Kelloway Construction, hired by the provincial government at a cost of $924,129. Clean-up of the site was completed in 2010 and a new long-term care facility is currently being constructed there.[1]
