The head of the McGill University Health Centre is leaving the job.

Normand Rinfret will step down Sept. 2.

Rinfret spent most of his career at the MUHC and was appointed to replace Arthur Porter in 2011.

Rinfret oversaw the move into the Glen site while dealing with cost cutting measures demanded by the provincial government.

His successor will be appointed by Health Minister Gaetan Barrette.
