“Faced with an outcry from patients’ groups and union leaders, Health Minister Gaétan Barrette has backed off plans to appoint within days more than half the board of the McGill University Health Centre.”
Health Minister hopes to name members to the MUHC board by the end of the summer, although he will continue to consult with union leaders and patient-rights representatives. According to Barrette’s press attaché, Thursday’s meetings were described as “positive and constructive”.
The patients’ group were worried about the invovlement of the QCGN is reshaping MUHC leadership, while arguing they didn’t represent the broader diverse members of the MUHC and McGill communities. The article also points out to possible discussions between Eric Maldoff on potential names to sit on the MUHC board.
