Departments and staff
The Emergency Department at the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) is made up of highly trained and experienced staff who treat children and their families during medical emergencies. The Emergency is open 24/7, 365 days a year.
We see 82,000 patients a year in Emergency which averages to one patient every seven minutes. Of this number, more than 15,000 patients are seen in our Trauma Centre. Our ability to promptly respond and care for these children comes from our strong commitment to clinical excellence, education and research.
Our service provides high-quality, evidence-based care from evaluation to investigation and medical and surgical treatments.
The Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Clinical Ethics Service provides support to patients, families and healthcare teams who face challenging situations or difficult choices.
