This is one more step towards meeting the growing needs of the region’s citizens and offering them better quality health care and services. This project aims to modernize the facilities of the surgical technical platform: the operating room, whose number of rooms will be increased to 15, the day surgery sector, minor surgeries and endoscopy interventions. In addition, it includes, in particular, pre-admission and the recovery room.
Estimated at approximately $450 million, the modernization of the hospital will also provide more space and equipment to improve support services, including the pharmacy sector, the blood bank and logistical and technical services. It should also be noted that the pathology sector will be completely redone, for the benefit of the citizens of the region.
Providing modern care environments that are better adapted to the needs of the population, as well as attractive work environments, is one of the key elements of Minister Dubé’s Health Plan. On the one hand, it improves the quality of the experience offered to patients in Saint-Jérôme and the surrounding area. On the other hand, it helps to improve the attraction and retention of personnel in the region.
“Modernizing and better adapting our health infrastructures is an essential foundation of a solid health network, and a key element of the Health Plan. The modernization project under development at the Saint-Jérôme Regional Hospital is a fine example, and I am pleased to see that it has reached an important stage with the launch of calls for tenders for professional services. » said Christian Dubé, Minister of Health
“The modernization of the Saint-Jérôme Regional Hospital is an issue that I follow very closely. Today marks a concrete stage in the design work. I would like to thank the teams working to provide our region with a much more modern and better adapted hospital, for the benefit of both patients and staff. This is a project that is eagerly awaited by our fellow citizens and which will ultimately make it possible to better meet the growing needs of the population of the Laurentians. » said Youri Chassin, MNA for Saint-Jérôme and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health
The modernization of a hospital serving many cities is essential for the provision of quality healthcare services to the community. Modern facilities and technology can improve patient care, increase efficiency and productivity, attract top medical talent, and have a positive economic impact on the community. Investing in the modernization of a hospital is not only important for the health of the community but also for the long-term sustainability of the healthcare system.
