In October of 1996, Montréal’s Hotel-Dieu, Notre-Dame and Saint-Luc hospitals were combined to create a unified teaching hospital centre, the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM). A university hospital affiliated with the Université de Montréal, the CHUM’s mission is to provide healthcare services, conduct research, teach and promote health, as well as to assess healthcare technologies and services. The CHUM is Québec’s largest university hospital at a single site and one of the biggest teaching hospitals in North America.
Serving Greater Montréal and the entire province of Québec, this state-of-the-art hospital welcomes some 500,000 patients every year providing the very best specialized and ultraspecialized care. The CHUM is improving health among the adult and aging populations it serves thanks to its unique areas of expertise and innovations.
The Fondation du CHUM serves as a catalyst and a driving force in carrying out the CHUM’s mission to expand its local, national and international reputation and influence, and to accelerate its technological developments.
“The CHUM is a vital institution in the city of Montréal and holds special meaning for all of Québec,” says Paul Genest, Senior Vice-President of Power Corporation. “Its history, chapter by chapter, was written as the history of both the province and the country unfolded. Today it remains a shining example of medical excellence and life-changing research.”
