Major expansion announced at the JGH: “Pavilion K” will house state-of-the-art ER

The Executive Director of the Jewish General Hospital, Dr. Hartley Stern, and the President of the JGH Board of Directors, Mr. Bernard Stotland, enthusiastically welcomed today’s announcement by the Quebec Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr. Yves Bolduc, on the construction of a new major wing of the Jewish General Hospital. Pavilion K will be designed and equipped to meet the critical care needs of Quebec patients well into the future. Phase 1 will feature a state-of-the-art emergency department to address wait time and patient flow issues faced by ERs throughout the province, all the while preserving patients’ privacy, dignity and safety.


The next phases of the new complex will address other serious healthcare challenges in Quebec, namely access to operating rooms and intensive-care facilities. “We are excited about plans to work in cooperation with the Quebec government on these successive phases,” said Dr. Stern.


The facility will be located on Légaré Street, immediately behind the hospital’s existing E and H pavilions, and across the street from the main hospital parking lot.


“The JGH is renowned for the excellence of our clinical staff. This ambitious project will bring our physical infrastructure into the 21st century, to match the exceptional quality of our clinical care,” said Dr. Stern. “We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Quebec government to build on our legacy of providing the highest quality of compassionate care to our patients and their families, in our community and throughout the province.”


The JGH Emergency Department was built for 38,000 patients per year, however it now sees some 70,000 patients annually. The JGH is the busiest ER in Quebec in terms of adult stretcher patients. It also sees twice as many patients over 75 years of age compared to other Quebec university teaching hospitals of comparable size.


“We are delighted to celebrate this truly ‘groundbreaking’ occasion,” said Mr. Stotland.








Thanks to GDS for the folowing :

So it will be on Legare st? instead of the current parking lot? That will start to make quite a effect on the skyline, view from the north....


From what I read its seems so. Plus from with the rending it doesn't look like there the current hospital around it.

Now that I read it more, this is exactly what's needed. Rumor has it that since these services are moving out of the old pavilion, the beds there won't be eliminated but rather stay open which means this WILL add beds.


I just keep hoping that someone realizes the should use the architect of this and / or the CRCHUM is used for the MUHC because every rendering I see of that thing looks like communist Russia.

      Les points saillants de l'ensemble du projet sont :
      1 400 unités de logements locatifs, de copropriétés et de logements sociaux ; sept immeubles, dont six de 20 à 32 étages (superficie totale de 130 000 m2) incluant un immeuble patrimonial de trois étages ; des commerces de proximité au rez-de-chaussée des immeubles ; des espaces à bureaux et un hôtel d'environ 250 chambres ; la construction d'un centre communautaire, le « Centre Peter-McGill », qui abritera notamment une salle de spectacle multifonctionnelle, une bibliothèque, des salles polyvalentes pour l'organisation d'activités culturelles et physiques et une grande salle communautaire ; l'aménagement d'espaces verts et d'un parc public qui compteront pour plus de 30 % de la superficie totale du projet ; l'agrandissement et le réaménagement de la place Henri-Dunant, ce qui implique le réaménagement d'un tronçon de la rue Lambert-Closse à des fins de parcs ; la restauration et l'intégration au projet de la première résidence des infirmières ; l'ouverture d'une nouvelle vitrine sur le square Cabot. Le volet communautaire inclura la construction du centre Peter-McGill et une contribution significative à l'aménagement du parc Henri-Dunant, deux éléments dont bénéficiera la population du quartier. Ces éléments permettront de créer un grand ensemble public assurant la consolidation du square Cabot et du parc Hector Toe-Blake en tant que cœur culturel et social de ce secteur de la Ville de Montréal. Ainsi, le projet contribuera à la relance économique de la rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest.

      Quartier Concordia
      Quartier Concordia will transform the Sir George Williams campus from a collection of scattered buildings into a welcoming and cohesive urban campus in the area bordered generally by Sherbrooke, Guy, René-Lévesque, and Bishop.
      The goals of the Quartier Concordia project include improving the use of outdoor spaces, stimulating street life, and providing respite for the Concordia community and the public. The project will optimize vehicular and bicycle traffic as well as pedestrian flow, facilitate movement between campus buildings, and ensure the safe interaction of vehicles and pedestrians. Quartier Concordia will also maintain a welcoming environment for the Concordia community and the public, highlight landmarks, improve the use of space, promote the display of artwork and create a distinct campus environment within the downtown core.
      The project will be carried out over several years by Groupe Cardinal Hardy and in conjunction with the City of Montreal.

      A multi-year project
      Landscape architect: Groupe Cardinal Hardy
      Location: The area bordered by Sherbrooke, Guy, René-Lévesque, and Bishop
      The project will promote a distinct, welcoming, and efficient downtown campus

      Ahead: A brighter horizon for Cabot Square
      Plans due; Downtown area in search of an identity
      Source: The Gazette
      Cty councillor Karim Boulos is standing in the Canadian Centre for Architecture, airing his optimism over a scale model of what is known as "the Cabot Square area" - a part of the Peter McGill district he represents.
      But the Cabot Square area is also a stretch of Ste. Catherine St. that makes many Montrealers wince.
      The thoroughfare between Lambert Closse and Chomedey Sts. has been this city's version of a picture of Dorian Gray, a pastiche of boarded-up storefronts, crumbling facades and grafitti that seems to have spread while other neighbourhoods renewed themselves.
      However, by this time next Monday, Boulos and the rest of the city will get a bigger glimpse of what might happen to the piece of downtown that's been in search of an identity for nearly a generation. That's when three teams of architects and urban planners will submit their versions of what should be done to revive the Cabot Square area.
      Boulos, Ville Marie borough mayor Benoit Labonté and members of an alliance of neighbourhood businesses and residents met the press yesterday to detail the attempts to revitalize the neighbourhood.
      The planning teams were formed after a collection of 25 business, property owners and residents' associations started the Table de concertation du centre-ville ouest.
      "The properties may be empty but the owners are still paying taxes," Boulos said. "They haven't left, they're waiting to see what's going to happen."
      The plans submitted by the teams will be judged by a jury that includes architect and Harvard professor Joan Busquest, Dinu Bumbaru of Heritage Montreal and founding director Phyllis Lambert of the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
      The successful submission will form the basis for an urban plan that will produced by the borough and submitted to public consultations.
      Boulos suggests that if everything goes well, changes in the district might begin "by this fall."
      And for Lambert, whose architectural centre sprawls across the neighbourhood's southern edge, change is what's needed for a district that spent decades losing more than it's gained.
      "Over the last years, this area has deteriorated miserably," she said. "There used to be the Forum and all those stores where the Faubourg (Ste. Catherine) is. ... But it just goes down the drain further and further.
      "Then there's the block ... just to the east of the Forum with the (Seville) theatre on it, which has been boarded up for years.
      "And this just destroys the whole area. People have no respect (for the neighbourhood), and why would you? People just walk down the street and it's so miserable."
      Lambert's nephew, Stephen Bronfman, is chairman of Claridge Inc., an investment company that owns the Seville Theatre block.
      Asked in October about the condition of the block, Lambert told The Gazette: "It is coming along. Slowly, but we are working closely with the city and other landlords in the area. It takes time to do properly."
      Labonté says a development project for the Seville block is under study by the borough's urban committee. Boulos has said in earlier interviews that a private investor plans to turn the block into student residences.
      "What I can tell you about this project," Labonté said, "is that that there will be lots of room for students - especially for Concordia University - and the design of the building will be quite impressive. ... I'm pretty confident this project at the Seville Theatre will start the renewal of this leg of Ste. Catherine St."
      A decision by the borough on which development plan will be used is expected in May. But final approval will rest with the city's executive committee.
      In the meantime, Montrealers and the people who own the storefronts that make them wince wait to see what's going to happen.

      Bizarrement j'ai pas trouvé de fil pour ce méga projet au croisement de la 640 et de la 15. Un projet très important avec 1400 unités d'habitations.
      Voici une description de la compagnie Cherokee
      Redevelopment Plan
      The mixed-use lifestyle development, known as Faubourg Boisbriand, features a communityfocused design that includes the Boisbriand Town Center, 1,400 residential units, a new community center, recreational facilities and an urban square — all within walking distance of the future regional commuter rail line that connects the site to downtown Montreal. More than 15 percent of the development is dedicated to open spaces, including parks, several miles of walking and biking trails and other public amenities. In addition, 2,400 trees are being planted on site, and roughly 140,000 tons of concrete and 2.5 million square feet of asphalt are being reused. The project’s significant achievements were recently recognized by the Canadian Urban Institute’s (CUI) prestigious 2007 “Brownie” Award for best large-scale redevelopment project. Additional information can be found on our project Web site, www.
      Project Background
      Cherokee’s project in Boisbriand, Quebec, located just 15 miles north of Montreal, is a former General Motors automobile manufacturing plant encompassing 232 acres. Industrial activity at the site resulted in soil contamination, including petroleum from leaking underground storage tanks and an oil spill.
      The Cherokee Solution
      Cherokee acquired the property in 2004, upgraded the remediation to residential standards and secured the necessary entitlements to facilitate redevelopment of an integrated lifestyle community that combines shopping facilities with residential and office space, while providing urban infrastructures and respecting the natural environment. The project was designated as a pilot for USGBC’s new Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) program, which integrates principles of smart growth, neighborhood design and green building.

      La construction du CICM reposera entre les mains d’une entreprise de Brossard, EBC inc.
      L’Hôpital Charles LeMoyne (HCLM) a accordé, jeudi dernier, l’octroi d’un contrat de 40 millions $ pour la construction du Centre de cancérologie de la Montérégie (cicm) à l’entreprise EBC inc., dont la succursale de la région de Montréal est située sur la rue Isabelle, à Brossard.
      Cette sélection donnait suite à l’examen des huit soumissions reçues le 11 décembre dernier, parmi lesquelles la firme EBC inc. s’est alors classée plus bas soumissionnaire conforme, tel qu’exigé pour tout projet de construction dans le réseau de la santé et des services sociaux.
      «La majorité des firmes se trouvait grosso modo à environ un million $ près pour un projet évalué à 40 millions $», a précisé le président du conseil d’administration de l’HCLM, Marc Duclos.
      Devenue l’un des plus prestigieux entrepreneurs généraux en construction du Québec, l’entreprise EBC inc. s’est notamment fait connaître en Mon*té*régie par l’agrandissement du Centre hospitalier Honoré-Mercier de Saint-Hyacinthe et l’Hôpital de Granby. Elle a également construit le Centre de radiothérapie au centre hospitalier régional de Trois-Rivières.
      Dans la région de l’agglomération de Lon*gueuil, la firme EBC inc. est aussi l’entreprise qui travaille à l’immeuble du campus de Lon*gueuil de l’Université de Sherbrooke.
      Parce qu’elle est reconnue, notamment, pour son respect des échéanciers serrés, M. Duclos a admis, à l’issue de la rencontre, que «dans notre cas, c’est important de les respecter parce que nous parlons de sauver des vies, nous parlons de traitements de cancer. Notre objectif est d’être capable d’accommoder 400 patients par jour».
      L’HCLM planifie la mobilisation du chantier pour commencer l’excavation à la fin de janvier ou au début de février 2009.
