After Scandals At Major Montreal Hospital, Fundraising Takes A Hit

Jul 31, 2017

Following years of scandal surrounding the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) in Montreal, donations have dropped sharply.

That's just the latest for the large public hospital network, which has been struggling with bad publicity since shortly after it opened a new facility in 2015.

Aaron Derfel has reported on the hospital and its woes for the Montreal Gazette. He says that the troubles at MUHC began with corruption charges over the construction contract for the new hospital.

Derfel spoke to VPR's Henry Epp. Listen to their conversation above.
