History Biographical
For most of the 20th century, Canada did not have universal health care for its citizens. During the period of largest immigration to Montreal’s Jewish community, individuals had to pay for their own medical care out of pocket, which meant that if you were a newly arrived immigrant or struggling to make ends meet, you might not be able to see a doctor. In the Jewish community, the solution to this problem was solved partially by people joining into sick benefit associations, which provided care for members. In 1912, the ladies auxiliary of one such group, the King Edward Benefit Association, cooperated together with a group of Jewish doctors to found the Herzl Dispensary. The Dispensary was very important to the community as by 1912, the number of poor, Jewish immigrants flooding into Montreal was rapidly increasing. Most significantly is that families or individuals could receive quality health care at little or no cost. The Herzl also offered Jewish immigrants care in their mother tongue – Yiddish – and in their neighborhood, a most welcome relief to people just settling into a strange, new land. The Herzl evolved over the years to include numerous services all under the vision of preventive, whole family health care. In the earlier years, it included a children’s clinic, a preventative medicine clinic, a well-being clinic and a dental clinic. Other services were added later such as an obstetrics programme, social work and psychiatric care for patients and geriatric care. 1912 – Herzl Dispensary opens on St. Dominque Street 1914 – Dispensary moves to St. Urbain Street 1936 – Dispensary moves again to Jeanne Mance Street 1948 – Dispensary changes its name to reflect its total health care mission; it now becomes the Herzl Health Centre 1973 – The Herzl Health Centre joins forces with the Jewish General Hospital Family Practice Centre. 1979 – Because of the success of the Herzl under the Jewish General Hospital, the Herzl hands over its charter to the Hospital.
