The construction of the future Montreal Children’s Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre is moving forward rapidly on the Glen site, currently Quebec’s largest construction site.
Over the years, our Hospital has become known for its wealth of expertise in various fields, particularly cardiology and cardiac surgery, trauma care, neurology and neurosurgery, developmental pediatrics and mental health. The new facilities due to open in 2015 will contribute to the strengthening of The Children’s leadership position in tertiary and quaternary care, and to the advancement of pediatric care in general.
Situated on the northeast corner of Decarie and St-Jacques, at the centre of three vibrant and highly accessible neighbourhoods, the Glen site will be an environment where compassionate care, top-notch teaching and groundbreaking medical research will be fully integrated across every department – pediatric and adult.
The Glen site will be home to the new Montreal Children’s Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Montreal Chest Institute, a Cancer Centre and the Research Institute of the MUHC, which will include The Children’s Research Institute. The Shriners Hospital will also be on the Glen site.
The proximity to adult services will allow our health care professionals who work with children and adults to collaborate and exchange information, research results, and treatment plans. More importantly, our young patients will pass seamlessly from pediatric care to adult services: a huge plus for young adults who might be anxious at the thought of changing hospitals or meeting a new doctor and caregiving team.
The new Children’s will be a state-of-the-art pediatric hospital that will offer our young patients the very best care possible, in a setting designed with their particular needs in mind. Although we are not yet able to walk through the physical hallways of the new hospital, you are invited to share our vision of what this new facility will look like, by taking a virtual tour of a patient room.
New facilities will allow us to offer our young patients even better care, in a healing environment specially adapted to their needs. Patients are at the heart of what we do, and the new Children’s will be designed with the comfort, dignity and safety of patients and their families in mind. The new Children’s will feature:
In short, the new Children’s will be all that modern medicine has to offer and more.
A key partner in the project, The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation is making a substantial contribution by raising $100 million through The Best Care for Children Campaign, chaired by Marc A. Courtois.
