JGH earns the highest ranking among Quebec healthcare institutions on Forbes list of Canada’s best employers for diversity

The Jewish General Hospital (JGH), part of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal, has earned a spot on the esteemed Forbes magazine list of Canada’s Best Employers for Diversity 2024. The JGH received the highest ranking among Quebec health care centres, and was one of only a few healthcare institutions to be listed from across the country. This prestigious honour has been bestowed in conjunction with Statista, a world-leading statistics portal and industry-ranking provider. The list was announced on July 9 and can be viewed on the Forbes  website.

“This recognition is a clear reflection of the value we place on people and the leadership taken by our team on the subject at CIUSSS West-Central Montreal,” says Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, the CIUSSS’s President and CEO. “Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in helping to foster exemplary working and learning environments which, in turn, contribute to the quality of our care and services.”

“To achieve the highest standards in delivery of health and social services, we must recognize and promote the skills and talents of each individual,” says Beverly Kravitz, CIUSSS West-Central Montreal’s Director of Human Resources, Communications and Legal Affairs.  “In doing so, we reflect our organizational identity and long-standing principles.”

“Diversity is essential to our strength because we are enriched by a variety of perspectives. Our commitment to creating a sense of belonging fosters a community where one is seen and welcomed. Inclusion builds a collaborative environment where all can flourish, while equity ensures fair access to care, improved healthcare outcomes and highlights our ethical responsibility to treat all patients with fairness and compassion,” she adds. “Embracing these principles fosters a culture where every voice is heard, every perspective is valued, and every individual can contribute and thrive.  We would like to recognize the leadership of Christine Morin that helps us promote in a very positive way all those principles and long-standing values.”

Canada's Best Employers for Diversity is based on data gathered in an independent survey of approximately 40,000 professionals from all Canadian industry sectors in which at least 500 people are employed. The evaluation was based on three criteria:

  • Personal recommendations from employees
  • Public recommendations from friends and relatives of the employees, or from members of the public who work in the same industry
  • Key performance indicators for diversity, in which respondents were asked their opinion of their employer’s performance in such categories as general diversity, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and disability
