Title
The Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital
Abstract
Founded in 1934 as a small community hospital - open to all patients, regardless of race, religion, language, or ethnic background - Montreal's Jewish General has grown to become an internationally recognized facility, and a major component of McGill University’s medical school. The authors provide an account of the hospital's history and its various directors, tracking the progress and medical breakthroughs of each department and presenting the clinicians and scientists who have made the hospital's progress possible. Sir Mortimer Barnett Davis (1866-1928) left most of his Montreal estate to be used for the construction of a Jewish public hospital in the city that would bear his name.
