A Big Welcome!

As a partner foundation of the MUHC, we wish to congratulate Dr. Pierre Gfeller on his appointment as the new President and CEO of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and extend our support to him.  We believe that Dr. Gfeller’s experience and knowledge will bring to the MUHC the leadership required for the continued excellence of our academic health centre.


Holder of a doctorate in medicine from McGill University and MBA from the Université du Québec à Montréal and Paris-Dauphine, Dr. Gfeller has more than 37 years of experience in the health and social services network, including more than 20 years as a manager. The new CEO has gained solid experience in the healthcare sector as well as university led education and research. He also holds a graduate degree in Public Health from Laval University. Thanks to the support of our donors, and under Dr. Gfeller’s leadership, we are confident that the Children’s will continue to be a world class hospital.
