A government-subsidized day care centre will soon be launched at the Jewish General Hospital, with 80 spaces for the children of staff of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.

Much of the renovation has already been completed to the interior of Pavilion N, a stand-alone building on Côte-des-Neiges Road, just south of de la Peltrie. Information about registration and a launch date is expected in the coming weeks.

At a news conference at the JGH on June 4, Luc Fortin, Minister of Families, called the new facility “a win for parents, a win for the employer, a win for the residents of this neighbourhood and, in general, a win for all of us in Quebec.”
