More than a research hospital, a hospital driven by research

MUHC among the top 3 on the list of Canada's Top 40 Research Hospitals:
Kudos to RI-MUHC researchers!


For the second year in a row, the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) is proud to be among the top three in Research Infosource's prestigious list of Canada's Top 40 Research Hospitals, which was published today.

Every year, Research Infosource Inc., a leading research, consulting, and publishing firm, provides analysis of leading Canadian research hospitals that enhance Canada's global competitiveness in the knowledge economy.

Thanks to the excellence associated with the Research Institute of the MUHC (RI-MUHC), the health centre ranks third on the annual top 40 list and keeps its position as the leading  research hospital in Quebec for overall research spending ($178.8M), which includes all funds (direct and indirect) spent on internal and external sources to support research.

Moreover, the MUHC placed second for hospital intensity (research spending as a percentage of total hospital spending) and for researcher intensity (research spending per researcher) in the Large hospital rankings.


“I wish to congratulate our investigators, as well as clinical and support teams, on this outstanding achievement. The ranking reflects their tireless efforts to create an intensive, integrative and collaborative environment at the MUHC, where world-class research thrives and continues to impact the present and future of health care for patients here at home and around the world.” 

– Martine Alfonso, Interim President and Executive Director, MUHC

“I am proud of our researchers, students and trainees who are constantly pushing boundaries of knowledge and innovation to make new discoveries in medicine. This is why the MUHC is a world-class health care institution. The MUHC is more than a research hospital, it is a hospital driven by research.”

– Dr. Bruce Mazer, Interim Executive Director and Chief Scientific Officer, RI-MUHC
