How are Air Liquide Healthcare, GH Medical & Campbell Medical connected?
In 1995 Air Liquide Healthcare acquired GH Medical, and Campbell Medical in 2000, thus becoming a Canada-wide leader in medical gas pipeline system services and preventive maintenance.
GH Medical originates in Quebec of the 1940's. Founded by Gerard Hurtubise and quickly rising to become the premier pipeline and medical gas systems service provider in that province, and soon thereafter in Ontario. Campbell Medical was founded in Alberta in the 70’s, and later expanded to serve Western Canada from a base in BC.
Today our national team of Air Liquide Healthcare service technicians and partners, located in every Province, bring the highest level of training and experience to our valued clientele. In keeping with the latest CSA requirements, our technical services staff are educated at the country’s only fully operational medical gas piping training centre, located in Blainville, Quebec.
Our commitment is to remain a recognized leader for clinical excellence, gaseous drugs, and medical products, preferred for a highly customer focused experience, and distinguished by the quality of our people.
