Women, chil­dren and fam­i­lies to get new cen­tre

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF - Vic­to­ria Vanier

The ex­pan­sion project of the Cen­tre femme-je­unesse­famille of the CHUS – Ho­pi­tal Fleu­ri­mont is now in­scribed in the Plan Que­be­cois des in­fra­struc­tures. It is one of the five big in­fra­struc­ture projects to be stud­ied in the 2015-2025 decade. Be­sides the con­struc­tion of the Cen­tre femme-je­unesse-famille, the project will also see the re­or­ga­ni­za­tion of the emer­gency rooms.

The pres­i­dent of the CHUS’ board, Jac­ques Fortier, said: “The in­te­gra­tion of this project in the Plan Que­be­cois des in­fra­struc­tures is one more mile­stone in the au­ton­omy of the new CIUSS Estrie-CHUS. For the mem­bers of the board and CHUS di­rec­tors, whose man­date of­fi­cially ends on March 31st (past), it is the out­come of many years of work on a project that will en­sure a whole gamut of ser­vices and care des­tined for moth­ers, chil­dren and fam­i­lies in the Estrie.”

The direc­tor gen­eral of the CHUS, Dr. Stephane Trem­blay, high­lighted: “the re­mark­able work of the ex­pan­sion project team as well as all the peo­ple, em­ploy­ees and doc­tors who col­lab­o­rated on the project over the years.”

When the cen­tre opens, it will be called the Pav­il­lon en­fant-soleil be­cause of the gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion of $10 mil­lion of­fered by Op­er­a­tion en­fant-soleil for its re­al­i­sa­tion.
