The positive role of private medical clinics in Quebec

December 5, 2013

More and more people in the province of Quebec are turning to private clinics for treatment. As part of the MEI’s health care research program, Jasmin Guénette, Vice President of the MEI, met with patients and health care professionals in order to better understand the positive role played by private medical clinics in Quebec. Filmed in the spring of 2013, this short documentary shows that private clinics are responding to a real need and are part of the solution to insure that services are being offered within reasonable time to the population.

Media release: Private clinics are part of the solution, not part of the problem, according to the Montreal Economic Institute
