Dave Lysecki was born in Hamilton. After an undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, he completed medical school at McMaster. He then trained in Pediatrics, Pediatric Hematology, Pediatric Oncology, and Pediatric Palliative Care, based primarily out of Queen’s and University of Toronto, with stints in Ottawa, Halifax, Vancouver, Calgary, Nunavut, England, and South Africa. He came back to Hamilton in 2015 with his wife and no children. However, two children have since sprouted roots and started running around his home.

 

Since being back, he has initiated the region’s first specialist pediatric palliative care program to enhance the quality of life for children living with life-threatening conditions and their families. His program, HHS, and the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice Organization have partnered to explore together the possibility of bringing a pediatric hospice to Hamilton.
