It is with great pride that the Board of Trustees of Hôpital Montfort announces the appointment of Dominic Giroux as President and CEO.

I would like to take this opportunity to salute the exceptional work of my predecessor, Dr. Bernard Leduc. I look forward to meeting with the hospital's teams and partners to define together the future priorities of Montfort,” said Mr. Giroux.
