The Patients' Committee

 

 

On behalf of the MUHC patients and families, the MUHC Users' Committee wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the entire MUHC staff community for their exemplary care during these difficult and challenging times.

You have distinguished yourselves in some of the most difficult conditions that any of us have ever faced. Countless numbers of patients have found this pandemic easier to endure because of your dedication to your professional and personal ideals. You brought hope, relief and well-being to numerous people.
