Expansion component

Special Care Unit

The construction of a new 7-storey pavilion will add an aggregate gross area of 43,269 m2. This new building will be located west of the current CHU Sainte-Justine building and will be fully linked floor by floor with the existing building via footbridges and underground passages.

The project includes specialized care units for integrated pediatrics, specialized pediatrics and trauma surgery with a capacity of 120 beds, a 14-room surgery department with 11 operating theatres and three procedure rooms, 32 pediatric intensive and intermediate care beds, a 20-bed high risk pregnancy unit, a 23-bed birth unit, 80 intensive care beds in neonatology and medical imaging facilities.

Research Centre

The new Research Centre will boast international-caliber infrastructures, worthy of the health care professionals at work there. New laboratories will foster synergy between professional teams, a critical component for new major medical discoveries in mother and child health care. This will provide the seed for the growth and development of existing research teams, helping them continue to lead and remain responsive to a changing and competitive international environment.

The new Research Centre with a total surface area of 27,500 m2 will include 82 wet laboratory modules dedicated to basic research, two storeys including dry laboratory modules dedicated to clinical research, two auditoriums, common spaces and an office floor that will accommodate among other services, the Research Directorate. The 24 wet and dry laboratory modules currently housed in the existing building will be added to these facilities.

In addition to research laboratories, the project will include the construction of two (2) auditoriums, several conference rooms adapted for video conferences and telehealth, halls and teaching rooms, training and simulation laboratories and problem-based and evaluation-based teaching rooms.

Multi-level underground parking

The construction of a 1,200-space underground parking area for visitors and staff members, divided into 4 levels, is also part of the modernization project. As specified in the Master Development Plan of the City of Montreal, entry and exit points for the parking area will be located at both Côte-Sainte-Catherine and Decelles Street (5757 Decelles).

For information

The addition of new facilities will bring the total surface area of CHU Sainte-Justine to 200,000 m2, an increase of 65% over its total current surface area. The number of birthing rooms will be increased as well as the number of neonatology beds that will expand from 65 to 80.

Thanks to these new developments, multidisciplinary health care teams will now integrate health care, research and education at patients’ care points. CHU Sainte-Justine will now offer 419 beds in single occupancy rooms, including 261 beds in the new Special Care Unit and 158 beds in the existing renovated building.
