Lachine Campus Hospital Emergency Department returns to full operation after flood repairs
The Emergency Department of Lachine Campus of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) returned to full operation on Friday morning, following a week of reconstruction and restoration. The work was necessary after a flood caused on the premises the previous week.
Following extensive cleaning, disinfection and decontamination, air quality testing confirmed that the emergency department conditions were, once again, consistent with the strict standards and guidelines set out for healthcare institutions in Montreal.
