In 1981, Hope & Cope was launched under the auspices of the JGH Auxiliary to use specially trained volunteers (many of whom were cancer survivors) to support and counsel cancer patients and their families.
Numerous measures are now being implemented across the JGH, as a result of a meticulous, months-long budget-balancing process that was launched in mid-2014.
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.
Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, who served as Executive Director of the JGH from late 2013 until March 31 of this year, has been appointed President-Director General of the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal.
