A strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of patients will be crucial in helping the JGH succeed during the challenging period that the public healthcare system has now entered, says Dr, Anne Lemay.
The most extensive overhaul of Quebec’s healthcare system in recent memory has left some frayed nerves in its wake. That’s why JGH leaders are suggesting that those with a connection to the hospital take a calm, clear-eyed look at the new legislation.

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.
