Whether you live in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal or Abitibi, the New MUHC is part of your community. And while this cutting-edge health centre is taking shape at the Glen, Lachine and Mountain campuses, the MUHC administration is working to strengthen the institution’s ties with the community it serves.
In 1998, the MUHC opened an active dialogue with its new neighbours at the Glen Campus. In November 2004, we confirmed our commitment to this community by signing a partnership agreement with the Inter-Neighbourhood Coalition. Not only does this agreement ensure open dialogue with the community, but it also promotes potential employability, environmental protection, economic development and accessibility.
The MUHC also supports a research project headed by McGill University and subsidized by the Community-University Research Alliance (CURA), who are looking at how the project can contribute to community development.
For the Mountain Campus, the MUHC has opened channels of communication with area residents and established a liaison committee with Héritage Montréal and Les Amis de la montagne.
Finally, the MUHC is working with regional health care partners to provide specialized care to patients in Montreal, Montérégie-Ouest, Outaouais, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Terres-cries-de-la-Baie-James and Nunavik, which it serves via the McGill RUIS (Réseau universitaire intégré de santé).
