Health Sciences Centre was established in 1973 through an Act of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba. The Act brought together several of Western Canada’s most respected health care institutions, each unique in its own history of service: The Winnipeg General Hospital, The Children’s Hospital of Winnipeg, The Manitoba Rehabilitation Hospital and the D.A. Stewart Centre (Respiratory Hospital).
The purpose of the merger was to produce global hospital planning, uniting these facilities under a single administration. A separate affiliation agreement was signed with the Manitoba Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation (now CancerCare Manitoba).
On April 1, 2000, Health Sciences Centre amalgamated with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) and since, has been governed by the WRHA Board of Directors. The Health Sciences Centre Act was subsequently repealed by the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba and in 2001, HSC became an operating division of the WRHA.
