A new era begins for the Mother-Child/Gynaecology Unit at CHU Sainte-Justine
The CHU Sainte-Justine (CHUSJ) is proud to announce the opening of its brand new Mother Child/Gynaecology Unit on January 13. The unit will be fully adapted to modern medicine and care, a place where families can experience the momentous event of childbirth in comfort and staff can work in an environment that is both pleasing and functional.
Completion of the first phase of redevelopment work
The much-anticipated relocation to the 4th floor will mark the completion of the first phase of redevelopment work in this area, as part of the Growing Up Healthy project. The CHUSJ is pleased to offer its clientele rooms that are larger and better equipped, in keeping with a modern university hospital centre.
"Being in contact with families, our teams grasp the importance of a bright and modern environment that can even be described as healing when it is accompanied by quality care, as is the case at the CHU," said Caroline Barbir, President and CEO of the CHUSJ.
Families can now enjoy more space in a comfortable, air-conditioned environment. A number of new features have been designed-in as part of the modernization of Mother-Child/Gynaecology, including a brand new neonatal monitoring unit, rooms adapted for bariatric patients, negative-pressure rooms, a gynaecological examination room, a neonatal follow-up clinic, and spacious and functional work areas. The team also took the opportunity to implement new working procedures, including the care partner chart, a practical tool for involving families in providing care.
At the end of the project, the second phase of which is scheduled to conclude in the summer of 2021, the Mother-Child/Gynaecology Unit will occupy the entire 4th floor and have 55 beds.
