A new hospital and research centre will replace the three facilities which currently make up the Centre hospitalier de l’université de Montréal (CHUM): Hôtel-Dieu in Montréal, Notre-Dame Hospital and Saint-Luc Hospital. The project received the go-ahead in 2010, which brings all three francophone university hospitals together under one roof.
Phase one, construction of the research centre, was opened in the fall of 2013. Phase two of the project, three 25-storey buildings that will each house therapeutic and hospital diagnostic services, emergency, and clinical follow-ups as well as clinical and logistical support, welcomed its first patients in early October of 2017. Phase three of the project, now underway, consists of the construction of an adjacent building to accommodate part of the outpatient clinics, clinico-administrative offices, library, archives, a 500-seat amphitheater, and another parking section. Phase three is scheduled for completion in 2021.
