Design and architecture


CHU Sainte-Justine adopts a patient-centered approach to providing health care services based on the world’s best practices. This approach focuses on patient care and any needed follow-up in their home environment through the use of innovative and proven technology.

This approach also encourages knowledge sharing with families and colleagues of the healthcare network.

A design that promotes the humanization of care

CHU Sainte-Justine promotes a human approach to health care services, centered on the child’s development and on the family. The hospital design and layout will be developed to meet the needs of patients, families and staff members:

  • Individual rooms;
  • Natural light;
  • Noise level management;
  • Separate spaces dedicated to patients, their families and staff members;
  • Comfortable furnishings for tending families;
  • Meeting and gathering rooms for families.


The Grandir en santé (Growing Up Healthy) project offers a life-related, hospital and work environment that is centered on patients, staff members and the neighbourhood. The healthcare environment design is based on innovative approaches and modern architectural trends such as:

  • Evidence-based design;
  • Healthcare approach centered around children and their families;/li>
  • Therapeutic environment;
  • Health awareness;
  • Sustainable development.
