The Lachine Hospital
Lachine Hospital has a long and rich history of providing excellent health care services to the community since its founding in 1913. As part of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) since 2008, Lachine Hospital patients experience the comfort of a community-based hospital environment, while benefiting from the resources of one of the world’s foremost academic health centres.
With specialty mandates in geriatric medicine, bariatrics, and ophthalmology, Lachine is also connected to the Camille Lefebvre long-term care pavilion, which offers 134 single-patient rooms including 20 long-term respiratory patient beds.
It has recently undergone expansion to modernize the Emergency Department and install the first MRI in Quebec’s public sector suitable for claustrophobic and morbidly obese patients. In the fall of 2015, it will also become the home of the Royal Victoria Hospital’s dialysis program, welcoming it into a newly-renovated section of the hospital that meets the needs of this patient population.
All services and departments currently offered at Lachine Hospital will remain the same.
