McGill University Teaching Hospitals

The teaching hospital network of McGill University is an integral part of the research, teaching, and clinical activities of the Faculty of Medicine. By agreement and tradition, the administration, medical staff, and scientific personnel of these institutions are closely integrated with McGill University and form the basis for the clinical departments of the Faculty of Medicine:

McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) /

Each year the MUHC receives almost one million ambulatory visits, 40,000 in-patient stays, and trains approximately 2,000 medical and surgical residents, nurses and students.
The MUHC has over 1,300 physicians and 10,000 health care and other personnel, working within the organization's six clinical missions-The Montreal Children's Hospital, Medicine, Surgery, Neurosciences, Mental Health, and Women's Health.
The Research Institute of the MUHC is a world-renowned biomedical and health-care hospital research centre. The institute supports over 500 researchers, nearly 1,000 graduate and post-doctoral students and operates more than 300 laboratories devoted to a broad spectrum of fundamental and clinical research. The Research Institute operates at the forefront of knowledge, innovation and technology and is inextricably linked to the clinical programs of the MUHC, ensuring that patients benefit directly from the latest research-based knowledge.
A central future goal of the MUHC is to consolidate services on two campuses; this will involve modernization of the downtown Montreal General Hospital and the building of a new facility at the Glen Yard-a 43-acre site located in central Montreal. This two-campus redevelopment project will consolidate our patient care, research and teaching activities and support our continued excellence.

Since 1934, the Sir Mortimer B. Davis - Jewish General Hospital has served patients from diverse religious, linguistic and cultural backgrounds in Montreal, throughout Quebec and beyond. As one of the province's largest acute-care hospitals, this 637 bed McGill University teaching hospital admits more than 22,000 patients per year, while handling approximately 300,000 outpatient visits, 61,000 emergency visits and 3,700 births. The JGH is widely recognized for excellence in various specialties, including oncology, cardiology, neonatology, orthopedics, family medicine, aging and emergency medicine. As a result, the hospital has been designated by the government of Quebec as one of Montreal's five major service centres; a provincial centre for high risk obstetrical and neonatal care; and a breast referral and investigation centre. Treatment is provided by approximately 550 affiliated doctors-with teaching appointments at McGill University-as well as 300 medical residents per year. The Jewish General Hospital carries out more than 22% of the training for McGill's Faculty of Medicine and is home to several of the university's programs, including the McGill AIDS Centre, the McGill Centre for Translational Research in Cancer, the McGill Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology Program, and the McGill Menopause Clinic. The hospital's Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research is acknowledged as a world leader in many fields of investigation, including cancer (the Terry Fox Molecular Oncology Group), aging (the Bloomfield Centre for Studies in Aging), epidemiology (the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Community Studies), nursing (the Centre for Nursing Research), AIDS, cardiovascular disease, genetics, emergency medicine, nephrology, and the psychosocial aspects of illness. The outstanding quality of this work has enabled the Lady Davis Institute to attract more funding per researcher than any other hospital affiliated research institution in Quebec.
