It’s become almost routine to say that miracles happen every day at the Jewish General Hospital. But the full meaning of that phrase really hit home this past week, with the announcement that one of the smallest premature babies ever to have been born and survived in Quebec — originally weighing only 375 grams — was finally going home.
Little Amelia was born last September at the JGH and now weights more than 4 pounds. Warmest congratulations to Dr. Apostolos Papageorgiou, Chief of Pediatrics and Neonatology, and to the entire team, especially the dedicated nursing staff. This week’s wonderful achievement is typical of the outstanding work of our many healthcare teams throughout the hospital, who consistently apply their varied yet complementary skills to dealing with some extraordinary challenges.
The JGH is proud to be a provincial referral centre for high-risk pregnancies — all part of our determination to do our best on behalf the people of Quebec through our in-house expertise and our work with partners across the province to strengthen and improve the public healthcare system.
