An MUHC Hospital

Since its founding in 1913, Lachine Hospital has had a rich history of providing excellent healthcare services to the community. 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.

Lachine Hospital has recently undergone an expansion to modernize the Emergency Department and install the first MRI in Quebec’s public sector suitable for claustrophobic and morbidly obese patients. It has 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.

The MUHC is one of the world’s foremost academic health centres. Building on the tradition of medical leadership of its founding hospitals, the MUHC provides exceptional multidisciplinary patient-centric care. Affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, the MUHC continues to shape the course of adult and pediatric medicine by attracting clinical and research expertise from around the globe, assessing the latest in medical technology, and training the next generation of medical professionals.
