HAB Decisions

Section 50(4) of the Administrative Tribunal Act requires that the HAB make its decisions accessible to the public.

Below are links to final and preliminary decisions of the HAB since it was created in 1973 as the former Medical Appeal Board to the current decisions of the Hospital Appeal Board.

The names of the parties involved in the appeal are generally included, however, personal identifiers of other third parties, witnesses and patients have been removed to protect the privacy of those individuals. View the Board’s Decision Publication Policy.

The official version of the HAB decision is the signed original in the Board’s files. If there is a discrepancy between a decision on this web site and the official version, the official version is authoritative.
