Nearly four years after CIUSSS West-Central Montreal came into existence, it has been named one of Montreal’s Top Employers. This makes it one of only about 50 organizations in Montreal—and the only CIUSSS in Quebec—to have been singled out in this way.
The safety of healthcare users and the quality of their care will never be compromised, members of the public were promised at the inaugural Public Information Meeting of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.
As the JGH Board of Governors prepared to get down to business at its historic inaugural meeting, President Allen Rubin reminded his fellow members that the new Board is “empowered to make crucial decisions that affect the ability of the Jewish General Hospital to provide its patients with care of superior quality.”

Now that the reorganization of Quebec’s public healthcare system is under way, former Presidents of the Jewish General Hospital are reassuring the hospital’s supporters that the JGH is protected by special measures in the new legislation.
