Knowlton, PQ; University of Ottawa, 1969; obstetrics and gynecology. Died Jan. 18, 2022, aged 79. Survived by his wife, Alison Milligan. “Jean was on staff at the SMBD Jewish General Hospital in Montréal for 16 years. He had a busy gynecology and obstetrical practice, was a clinical assistant professor and co-ordinator of the Gynecology Oncology Department. In 1991, he and Alison moved to the Eastern Townships of Québec, where Jean joined the Brome-Mississquoi-Perkins (BMP) Hospital in Cowansville. As chief of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Jean and his team gave the BMP national recognition when it became the first hospital in Canada to be awarded Baby Friendly Hospital status, a World Health Organization and UNICEF accreditation. It was also voted the best hospital teaching centre by senior residents in obstetrics and gynecology at McGill University. Jean was very proud of the honour that his colleagues and hospital administrators at BMP bestowed on him when they named the new obstetrical/gynecology clinic the Dr. Jean de Saint Victor Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic in 2013.”
