JGH’s 80th anniversary
recognized in National Assembly
Commemoration of the JGH’s 80th anniversary concluded on a high note in the National Assembly on November 5, 2014, as Pierre Arcand, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources and the Member for Mount Royal, read a declaration congratulating the hospital on its decades of achievement:
“As the Member for Mount Royal, it gives me great pleasure today to bring this chamber’s attention to the 80th anniversary of the Jewish General Hospital, located in Côte-des-Neiges in my riding. I am pleased to welcome to the gallery today Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg [Executive Director], Brahm Gelfand [member of the Board of Directors], Johanne Boileau [Director of Nursing], Glenn Nashen [Director of Public Affairs and Communications] and Stephanie Malley [Communications Manager].
“Since 1934, the Jewish General Hospital has prided itself on providing high-quality treatment and thoughtful care to patients of diverse religious, ethnic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, who come to the hospital from across Montreal, Quebec and beyond.
“Each year, the Jewish General Hospital admits 24,000 patients, as well as handling 686,000 external visits, 72,000 emergency cases and 4,000 births. The hospital also has a research centre of international renown. The Jewish General constantly upgrades its facilities in order to deliver high-quality clinical treatment. Thus, the hospital has become an exemplary model within the healthcare system.
“And so, once again, happy anniversary. Thank you.”
