Testimonials of Petal’s Success

Jewish General Hospital

With 15 surgeons as well as 23 residents and locums, the Department of General Surgery at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal (Canada) must schedule shifts at two sites, taking into account operating room availability. With the Petal platform, the manager automated schedule creation and provided his team a better view of the supervising physician-resident links.

The Petal Effect

  • 38+ doctors with a schedule adapted to their needs
  • 2,650+ simplified schedule changes per year
  • Creating a schedule for 15 surgeons who operate at multiple sites is not easy, especially because you have to take into account factors such as the operating room availability, residents, absences, types of operations and on-call shifts coverage. Petal has significantly reduced the time I spend planning schedules by automatically creating a schedule that takes all of these variables into account and can be adjusted however I want.
