No aesthetics, insists Dubé
In February, Radio-Canada revealed that 15 private surgeries were allowed in Quebec.
Asked on Tuesday during a press conference in the National Assembly, the Minister of Health, Christian Dubé, said that he is ready to grant new private surgery centers, unless they do aesthetics, because of the lack of nurses in the public network.
“If you speed up” [le traitement des gens inscrits sur les] waiting for the limits and the fact that these clinics are not so-called aesthetic, we will authorize them. »

According to our information, two plastic surgeons bought a building in a commercial street in Westmount at the beginning of the COVID pandemic and established six operating theaters there, an investment of several million dollars.
Two years later, the two contracting surgeons, who applied for a review after the permit was denied, had to raise the mortgage to $15 million and throw in legal mortgages in the construction industry.
The website significantly promotes the medical surgery services offered there.
According to a source close to the scene, the two doctors took a bold financial risk.
According to the Médecins québécois pour le régime public group, the influx of surgeries for the RAMQ should be paid in a short time.
“In the medium and long term, the very existence of specialized medical centers must be called into question. Continuing to develop a parallel CMS network, we risk the renewal with these companies, some problems similar to those we see today with private practice institutions. »
