Every year the Reitman family puts out a generous spread for all The Neuro’s staff continuing a legacy of celebrating care and dedication

In 1947 Ruth Reitman had a difficult surgery at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital – The Neuro, at McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre. Grateful and impressed by the treatment and care she received, Mrs. Reitman arranged a Christmas party for neurosurgeon Dr. William Cone, his residents and nursing staff.
