From the archives: Refurbishing, renovating, building up, building out
In every era and every decade, practically every corner of the JGH has been a construction zone.
Sometimes the renovations have been relatively modest—upgrade an elevator, modernize a nursing station, expand a family lounge—to enhance the patient experience and improve working conditions for staff.
At other times, the changes have been positively amazing, as well as historic—adding new floors atop Pavilion E to launch the Segal Cancer Centre in 2006, or constructing the enormous Pavilion K which has changed the nature of emergency treatment, surgery and critical care at the JGH since 2014.
The Jewish General Hospital’s 85th anniversary is an ideal occasion to take a glimpse into the past. By remembering the extraordinary efforts of the hospital’s founders, supporters, staff and volunteers, we honour the enduring legacy of the JGH.
