Last Resort: Hospital Care in Canada

Denis Goulet, Université de Sherbrooke

Hospitals primarily dedicated to medical care date to the early 1800s, when physicians and philanthropists set up small private facilities to make treatment more widely available. The foundations of a Canadian hospital system were laid, but it was not until the latter half of the 19th century that the modern hospital was born.
