The JGH Medical Genetics has now been established as a department in its own right; this designation makes the JGH the first hospital in the McGill system to establish its own Department of Medical Genetics. The major clinical focus of the department continues to be in the areas of Hereditary Cancer and Prenatal Diagnosis. 

The department has undergone a major refurbishment and now has a counselling room primarily used for prenatal diagnosis cases. Much of the work continues to take place in the Cancer Prevention Centre, which has been incorporated into the new Segal Cancer Centre and provides state-of-the-art facilities for managing individuals and families with a hereditary predisposition to cancer. This new space has also improved integration of the cancer genetics service with other oncology services.
