Quebec Government to Contribute $300,000 to Jewish Hospital

The Jewish General Hospital here, dedicating a 170-bed new wing, was told it will receive a $300,000 grant from the provincial government, as announced by Provincial Health Minister J.R.A. Paquette, in the presence of Federal, provincial and municipal leaders.

The new wing, second phase of a $55,000,000 expansion program, adds facilities for teaching, research and treatment as well as the 170 beds. Completion of the new wings was officially marked when a gold key was presented to president Allan Bronfman by David Kirsch, chairman of the building committee.
