Événements Hospital / Hôpital IHSP 2015 Conference
In 2015-16, Montreal will witness the opening of two new ‘super-hospitals’ – the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM). These mammoth public infrastructure projects have garnered enormous public attention regarding the governance of billions of taxpayers’ dollars. Less consideration, however, has been devoted to understanding these dramatic new medical institutions in a broader societal perspective. The new ‘super hospitals’ will have a profound impact on the urban environment in Montreal for generations to come and lead to a profound reorganization in the provision of health care services.
