The Camille-Lefebvre Pavilion houses 114 long-term care beds and 20 long-term-respiratory care beds. Its mission is to accommodate people who require assistance, support and surveillance services specially adapted to their needs. These care services are provided by an interdisciplinary team dedicated to meeting all the needs of the residents. More specifically, the Camille-Lefebvre Pavilion is meant to be a social living environment where the priority is preserving an optimal quality of life for residents through the promotion and maintenance of their capacities so that they can maintain their own level of autonomy or enhance it as much as possible.
In 1986 Quebec’s Minister of Health and Social Services confirmed the construction of a new 128-bed section for long-term care, as well as the refitting of an active geriatric unit. The long-term care pavilion opened in 1992, and in 1996 it became known officially as the Camille-Lefebvre Pavilion.
Camille Lefebvre was the first secular pharmacist to work in a hospital run by the Sisters of Providence. In 1972 he also became the first lay general manager of the hospital.
