A significant exposure to COVID-19 forces us to interrupt caregiver visits to the 2nd floor of Camille Lefebvre Pavilion of the Lachine Hospital as of Thursday, October 22, 2020, for a minimum period of two weeks.

  • Two staff members were confirmed positive
  • At this time, a total of 4 MUHC staff members have been quarantined
