The New Palliative Care Unit at the Montreal General Hospital is complete and has been operational since July 10th, 2008. After six months of intense effort, the unit comprises fourteen single rooms and one double room, all of which have a television and comfortably accommodate family members. The new unit also offers a sitting room, a therapeutic bathroom, an office locale for the multidisciplinary team, space for consultation and medication preparation, and a conference room. In addition to the Cedars Cancer Institute, we are indebted to the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and our donors, which provided the necessary funds to create this vital healing environment. Considerable thanks are also due to the teams on ICU-9, Neurosciences-14 and Hemato-Oncology-17, as well as to Technical Services for their precious collaboration.
