I’ve always been fascinated by hospitals and the world of medicine: curious about the secrets of “authorized personnel only” zones, addicted to shows like House and ER, and devouring behind-the-scenes tales like The Night Shift.
Today I had a chance to tour my neighbourhood’s brand new “Superhospital”, before patients and staff move in next spring. The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) will consolidate several large – and aging – Montreal-area hospitals on one site, including The Montreal Children’s Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, and Montreal Chest Institute, as well as the Research Institute and Cedars Cancer Centre. A new Shriners Hospital for Children will also be housed nearby.
The visit was a rare opportunity to explore a huge, pristine, health-care facility before the first blood draw is taken and first baby born. Here’s what it looked like.

Thanks for the inside scoop! Great to get an idea of what it looks like before I need to bring one of the minions for a test.
Excellent pics and a good teaser of what’s to come when it opens! Thanks, Kathryn!
The room they have us staying in at the hospital is on an unused overflow wing that has all of these “restricted–authorized personnel only” signs on the entrance to the wing. I’m having fun exploring it 🙂
