The "Growing Up Healthy" modernization project is providing the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center with the necessary infrastructure to meet the needs of mothers and their children in all aspects of the institution's mission: specialized care and services, research, teaching, technology assessment and health promotion. The project has two components: the construction of an extension and the modernization of existing buildings.
The new Specialized Units Building (BUS) and Research Center cover a total of 127,500 m² of floor area, which includes underground parking for 1,200 vehicles and a seven-storey thermal power plant. Designed in continuity with the existing facilities of the Sainte-Justine Hospital, the project is characterized by the division of the complex into two poles, the BUS and the Research Center, linked together by an atrium and two auditoriums (120 and 150 places) for the purposes of teaching and disseminating health promotion. The BUS groups together care units and diagnostic and therapeutic services: 275 individual hospital beds (32 in critical care, 43 in the birth unit, 80 in neonatology and 120 in pediatric care), a technical platform containing medical imaging (11 technical rooms, including two MRIs), and 14 operating rooms including 2 hybrid rooms (a hemodynamic room and a neurosurgery room combined with an MRI).
The Research Center is spread over nine levels and includes 84 wet research laboratory units, two levels of dry laboratory and technical and clinical administrative areas.
