Dr. Jamie MacKinnon never thought much about returning to Nova Scotia after leaving to pursue his medical studies in the Caribbean, the United States and finally, in Ontario.

The Queens General Hospital has new space for clinical or administrative use, thanks to the Queens General Hospital Foundation and members of the community who have supported the Foundation through their generous donations. The Foundation, which has supported the Queens General Hospital since 1988, has consistently supplied equipment, funded renovations and more recently helped recruit physicians and key health care workers for the hospital. Now, with the purchase of an adjacent building, the hospital has more flexibility to locate clinical services when needed.
