McGill University and MCH/MUHC respond to Quebec government's complementarity proposal


The Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services recently put a proposal to the Children's Hospital of the MUHC and to Ste-Justine Hospital on pediatric complementarity. This proposal has serious consequences for patient care, for the pediatric teaching program of the McGill Faculty of Medicine, and for pediatric research.

Following is our response, signed by McGill Principal and Vice-Chancellor Heather Munroe-Blum, MUHC Director General and Chief Executive Officer Arthur Porter and the Associate Director General for the Children's Hospital, Linda Christmann. The Children's Hospital is an essential part of the MUHC and McGill and a centre of excellence in pediatric care and academic medicine.
