When Pavilion K opened in 2016, it was an instant game-changer. Now, on its fifth anniversary, it has exceeded expectations, becoming the silent hero of the pandemic.
Myer Bick, retired President and CEO of the JGH Foundation, has been appointed to the Order of Canada in recognition of his career of distinguished service.
The expansion that the JGH has undergone during the first two decades of the 21st century would not have been possible without a pivotal event that took place on February 1, 2005: the purchase of land and buildings from Les Soeurs de St. Croix.
In every era and every decade, practically every corner of the JGH has been a construction zone.
A $200 million commitment by the Government of Quebec is enabling the JGH to proceed with extensive renovations to areas of the hospital that were vacated when many departments and services moved to Pavilion K.
One of Quebec’s top prizes for project management has been awarded to the JGH for its multi-year process of planning, budgeting and overseeing the construction of Pavilion K.
Just weeks since it swung into operation, Pavilion K already appears to be improving the well-being of patients and the quality of their care.
