Women, children and families to get new centre
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.
