Montreal General Hospital

The Montreal General Hospital (MGH), founded in 1821, enjoys a distinguished world reputation, as well as an impressive history of community service. The MGH, a pioneer hospital in North America, introduced teaching at the bedside and founded the first medical school in Canada — the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University.

The hospital has remained a teaching hospital for the century and a half of the Faculty’s existence. The Montreal General Hospital is dedicated to patient care through diagnosis, treatment, research and teaching.
