OTTAWA, July 15, 2013 /CNW/ - On behalf of the 78,000 physician members
of the Canadian Medical Association, I would like to congratulate Rona
Ambrose on her appointment as federal Minister of Health.
At a time when pressing budgetary concerns and an aging population are
putting increasing pressures on our health care system, the health
portfolio is more important than ever.
The CMA has a long history of working with its partners on behalf of
Canadians to ensure the health care system responds to the needs of all
Canadians when they need it, where they need it, regardless of ability
We look forward to working with Minister Ambrose in a collaborative
effort, with other health care providers and levels of government, to
ensure that Canadians have access to a high quality, accountable,
sustainable health care system that provides good value for taxpayers'

President, Canadian Medical Association
