The Raymond Barcelo Integrated Dialysis Center gathers in one building all activities related to the treatment of people suffering from kidney failure. It allows the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, a center of excellence in nephrology, to treat 200 patients per day and up to 70 patients simultaneously. The pavilion features hemodialysis treatment areas, including isolation areas with airlocks for infectious or immunosuppressed patients, teaching and staff areas, pre-dialysis clinics, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis and training clinics so that patients can perform their dialysis at home —4 stations— as well as administrative and reception areas and technical areas.
This grouping of all dialysis-related activities and their proximity promotes synergy between specialists in this cutting-edge field and optimizes the operation of the renal replacement unit. The pavilion is also well integrated with the rest of the hospital thanks to its connections with the Ambulatory Care Centre. It is connected by a glass walkway on the first floor, a footbridge on the second level for patients and staff, and by an underground tunnel through which employees reach the changing rooms and which is also used for supplies.
