Single-patient rooms

Currently, the MUHC offers 100 per cent single-patient rooms at the Glen site, and is moving towards offering the same service on all other sites. In individual rooms, patients can experience natural light, air conditioning, a locker, and a private bathroom that contributes to a healing environment.

At the Glen, the single-patient rooms offer:

  • Comfort: each room has a section with large reclining couches so families can be comfortable during overnight stays.
  • Reduced infections: studies have proven that single rooms decrease the risk of nosocomial infections spreading. 
  • The best in bedside care: the rooms are large enough to bring medical equipment directly to the bedside, reducing the need to transport patients elsewhere for testing.
  • Multimedia: wall-mounted flat-screen televisions are used for patient entertainment.
