The Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital

The bill to expand the Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital turns out to be higher than expected and that does not please Quebec. The government is asking the CIUSSS de l'Est-de-l'Île-de-Montréal to review its project to respect the initial budget that was granted to it, learned La Presse. This decision raises reactions, while a sit-in of protest held by a hundred nurses denouncing their working conditions took place this week.

The estimate the cost of the hospital expansion is $4.2 billion, $1.7 billion more than the original state-backed bill. The management of the establishment is currently considering the possibility of renovating the main building in the shape of a cross, which is the most worn part of the HRM, instead of betting on 720 new hospital beds in a new pavilion as planned in the initial project.

The hospital expansion project has been on the table since 2018 when Gaétan Barrette made the announcement as Liberal Minister of Health.

Remember that a record number of 565 requests to recruit nurses in France, South America and Morocco were submitted by the CIUSSS de l'Est-de-l'Île-de-Montréal to the Ministry of Health< /p>
