Pavilion K will be designed and equipped to meet the critical care needs of Quebec patients well into the future. Phase 1 will feature a state-of-the-art emergency department to address wait time and patient flow issues faced by ERs throughout the province, all the while preserving patients’ privacy, dignity and safety.
The next phases of the new complex will address other serious healthcare challenges in Quebec, namely access to operating rooms and intensive-care facilities. “We are excited about plans to work in cooperation with the Quebec government on these successive phases,” said Dr. Stern.
The facility will be located on Légaré Street, immediately behind the hospital’s existing E and H pavilions, and across the street from the main hospital parking lot.
