Humber River Hospital is a large urban hospital in northwest Toronto, Ontario. In 1998 the Ontario Ministry of Health Hospital Restructuring Commission recommended that hospitals merge across the province. The "new" hospital was created by amalgamating three separate hospitals in the former cities of York and North York, and included York-Finch Hospital, Northwestern Hospital, and the Humber Memorial Hospital. The hospitals were renamed according to their location and were referred to as the Finch, Keele and Church sites, respectively.

In 2011, the hospital broke ground on a new $1.75 billion facility near the intersection of Keele and Highway 401 (Wilson Site) which opened on October 18, 2015. This new facility led to the closure of the Keele and Church sites and is "North America's first fully digital hospital".[1][2]
