A first step towards the modernization of the Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital

The Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital must undergo a modernization cure since it is too dilapidated.

The Société québécoise des infrastructures (SQI) recently launched several calls for tenders for the construction of a multi-level parking lot on the site of the current Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) hospital parking lot. Work should begin on July 1 and end in June 2026. This is a first step in the modernization of the hospital, while the establishment requires major work due to its dilapidation.

This parking project will have 1,500 spaces on land adjacent to the HMR’s Rosemont Pavilion, located at the intersection of Rosemont Boulevard and Lacordaire Street. The parking lot could have between three and five floors, mostly or exclusively reserved for hospital staff. In this scenario, the cost of the work is estimated at $80 million before taxes.

In addition to including emergency exit stairwells, ascending and descending access ramps, and&rsquo ;an elevator block ensuring access for people with reduced mobility, the parking lot must be designed to allow pedestrians and cyclists to move in a path parallel to the cars. It also includes provision for bicycle racks in a secure enclosure.

The modernization of the HMR has caused much ink to flow this year. Recall that last January, La Presse learned that the government had asked the CIUSSS de l'Est-de-l'Île-de-Montréal to review its project to modernize the hospital. to respect the initial budget that had been granted to it. The new bill was much higher than expected.
