Construction of the new CHUM - Permanent Relocation of the Emergency Room Entrance at Hôpital Saint-Luc

MONTREAL, May 20, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The public entrance to the Emergency Department of Hôpital Saint-Luc, located at the rear of the hospital on Sanguinet Street between De La Gauchetière and René-Lévesque Blvd., will be permanently relocated as of 6:00 a.m., May 24, 2011. From that date on, staff, physicians, patients and visitors will need to use the hospital's main entrance on Saint-Denis St., south of René-Lévesque Blvd., to enter the hospital or access the Emergency Department. Only ambulances responding to emergency (9-1-1) calls may continue using the existing dedicated entrance on Sanguinet Street.

New signage and directions to the Emergency Department are being installed outside and within the hospital to assist patients and visitors. Renovations to the main entrance are currently underway to streamline access to the hospital. Dedicated parking spaces at the front of the hospital will be available for adapted vehicles and ambulances transporting patients between institutions. Security officers will be in place 24/7 to assist in maintaining good traffic flow and providing security services. The CHUM has advised first responder services of this access change to the Emergency Department of Hôpital Saint-Luc.

Preparatory work
Relocation of the public access to the Emergency Department and renovations to the main entrance of Hôpital Saint-Luc are necessary preparations for the construction of the new CHUM. Many activites are now underway on the main construction site south of the existing hospital, including: the demolition of the Roland-Bock Pavilion at the corner of Sanguinet Street and De La Gauchetière and the construction of slurry walls around the site perimeter (scheduled to be completed before the end of 2011).
