The elements of phase 2 will consolidate the activities and services currently spread throughout the different sites of CHU de Québec. This will resolve some problems linked to the multiplication of management systems and to the long travelling distances, leading to improved working conditions for the hospital staff and better quality of patient services and care. A critical care pavilion consolidates the emergency room, the operating theatre, intensive and intermediary care units as well as all related technical platforms within highly functional spaces. The project also included a new research center which contributes to the institution’s influence as an innovation hub for medical research. Finally, a clinical-logistics platform hosts services for pharmacy, catering, storage, printing, and office supplies distribution. The second phase will end with the refurbishment of part of the existing Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus.
Construction will be staggered until 2025: clinical-logistics platform in 2020; integrated cancer center and radio-oncology bloc in 2021; cyclotron and housing services in 2022; critical care pavilion in 2023 and refurbishment of Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus in 2025.
