Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg will serve a second term as the network’s President and CEO

The Board of Directors of the Integrated Health and Social Services University Network for West-Central Montreal is please to announce that Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg will serve a second term as the network’s President and CEO. The re-appointment was approved by Dr. Gaetan Barrette, Minister of Health and Social Services.

Dr. Rosenberg has been President and CEO since the CIUSSS came into existence in April 2015. Previously, he had been Executive Director of the Jewish General Hospital, as well as the hospital’s Chief of Surgery.

“Dr. Rosenberg’s re-appointment is truly welcome, because it provides our network with the continuity it needs,” says Alan Maislin, President of the Board of Directors of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.

“During his first term, Dr. Rosenberg proved to be a strong and supremely capable leader whose primary concern, on a consistent basis, was finding ways to improve the quality of care for healthcare users and to ensure that their needs take top priority.

“On a broader scale, he has also done his utmost to preserve the culture and unique identities of the various facilities within our network. I am very happy that these objectives will remain solidly in place.”

Dr. Rosenberg expressed satisfaction about his re-appointment, noting that he is “especially heartened by the extent to which members of staff, Senior Management, the Board of Directors, our tireless volunteers and our generous donors have pulled together to distinguish our CIUSSS. While operating within a radically new management structure, they all forged ahead with programs, initiatives and major renovations to improve the quality and environment of care.

“Like the improvement of quality, the process of continuing to build our CIUSSS is an ongoing task, and I have no doubt that significant challenges await us. However, I am equally confident that given the insightfulness, determination, ingenuity and warmth that I have encountered in all of our facilities, we are definitely up to the task.”
