On September 27 2022, the 20th edition of the 2022 Quebec Consulting Engineering Grand Prix gala ( Grands Prix du génie-conseil québécois 2022) took place, which rewards engineering projects. Among the 61 nominated projects, the Laurentian Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS des Laurentides with the firm gbi) won the Mechanical – Electrical Building category, with the mobile medical device reprocessing unit (URDM).
This project consisted of setting up a mobile URDM, with all the required sterilization equipment, which could be moved to various facilities. This initiative makes it possible to maintain or increase the reprocessing capacity of a facility during the performance of various works. This mobile URDM made it possible to carry out work at the Mont-Laurier mobile sterilization unit and to sterilize more than 10,000 medical instruments. It is currently at the Saint-Jérôme Regional Hospital as part of renovations to the current unit.

The CISSS des Laurentides teams have innovated by creating this mobile and modern unit that can be transported from one place to another, a first in Quebec for this type of specialized equipment. Thanks to the mobile unit, it is therefore possible to continue sterilization activities while carrying out modernization works in the unit that already existed.
