MUHC Board of Directors

The McGill University Health Centre (“MUHC”) Board of Directors (the “Board”) is a voluntary board. Members are not remunerated. The Board meets a minimum of six times a year. As well, members serve on a variety of board committees and task forces. The Board is ultimately responsible for managing the affairs of the MUHC by setting and monitoring the goals and orientations of the activities of the hospital and putting in place an administrative structure.

Prior to a 2011 amendment to the Act Respecting Health Services and Social Services R.S.Q., chapter S-4.2, members of the MUHC Board of Directors served for a period of three (3) years. In 2009 and 2010, however, the Quebec government enacted legislation to extend these terms and postpone the required elections for two additional years. On June 14, 2011, the Quebec government then enacted Bill 127, An Act to improve the management of the health and social services network. Bill 127 amended the structure as well as the designation, election and co-optation process for members of Board of Directors of public health institutions. The Board of Directors of the MUHC began their mandate as of February 1, 2012.
