McGill University Cardiology Division
Welcome to the McGill Cardiology Website.
McGill University is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Cardiology Division has members at several adult hospitals in the city and links to a pediatric hospital as well. The main sites are the McGill University Health Centre (Montreal General, Lachine General and Royal Victoria sites, Montreal Children's Hospital) and the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital. Affiliated centres are St. Mary's Hospital Centre and Lakeshore General Hospital. The McGill RUIS covers much of the western portion of Quebec and extends to the Far North. Links to other regional centres are being expanded.
February 2014/March 2014
The shortest month. Comes Russian in and groundhogs out of sight. Olympic fever chilled by snowy Nor'easters!
The Ides of March. Don't get stabbed in the back of progress. Pay taxes and save for the future. You missed the RRSP deadline, again....
