Albany Pomerleau, Doctor

After completing medical school in 1954 at Laval University and guided by the desire to work with his community, Albany Pomerleau started practicing at St-Joseph de Beauceville Hospital. He quickly specialized in obstetrics and had a passion for traumatology.

Dr. Pomerleau bought his house in 1955, where he lived and practiced for 25 years. At the hospital, the lead nuns recognized his selflessness, otherwise required by the Hippocratic Oath: ""I will use treatment to help the sick…""
