History Biographical
The Herzl Dispensary was founded in Montreal in 1912 to provide free medical care for the Jewish poor, and the opportunity for them to be treated in their own language by Jewish doctors. It was the first Jewish medical institution in Montreal, and began as an out-patient clinic (with minor surgery also done). It developed a children's clinic, dental clinic, a preventative medicine program, and well-being clinics for children and adults. In 1974, it was incorporated into the Jewish General Hospital as the Herzl Family Practice Centre, featuring family medicine, care for the elderly, pregnant women, and infants, and extensive psychiatric and social work care for its patients. It is also a training centre for doctors.
