Our Hospital

For more than one and a half centuries, McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) founding hospitals have been providing the best possible care to the community, and in 1997, the MUHC was officially created through the merger of 5 hospitals:

  • Montreal Children’s Hospital
  • Montreal Chest Institute
  • Montreal General Hospital
  • Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital
  • Royal Victoria Hospital

These hospitals’ respective research institutes merged to form the Research Institute of the MUHC and in 2008, the Lachine Hospital and Camille Lefebvre Pavilion also joined the MUHC.

Affiliated with McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine, the MUHC is an academic health centre that provides some of the most advanced care in the province, which includes complex diagnoses, treatments and surgeries in the areas of cardiology, endocrinology, transplantation, neurology, oncology, and respirology, among many others. The MUHC cares for some of the most critically ill patients across Quebec and provides highly-specialized care, treatments and medical testing that other hospitals simply cannot offer.

In addition to clinical care, the MUHC is an international research powerhouse that conducts both fundamental and clinical research. The hospital’s Research Institute supports more than 460 researchers and 1,700 ongoing research projects and clinical trials, and it continues to shape the course of adult and paediatric medicine by attracting research leaders from around the world.

Every year, close to 3,000 students train at the MUHC, including medical and surgical residents, nurses, medical students, and allied-health students. From paediatric medicine to adult trauma, students receive highly-specialized training, which thoroughly prepares them for their positions within the medical profession. All MUHC physicians are also professors within the McGill University Faculty of Medicine.

At the MUHC Foundation, patients and their families are at the heart of our mission, and we understand the importance of having world-class patient care available to them when they need it most.  It is an honour and a privilege to inspire our community to philanthropically support the greatest needs of the MUHC. Our donors motivate us, as well as our researchers and healthcare providers, to offer the best care for life.
