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.
The Cardiovascular Surgery Team at the Montreal Children’s Hospital provides consultation, evaluation, surgical care, and follow-up care for an entire range of pediatric surgical conditions in children from birth to early adulthood who have congenital (present at birth) and acquired (not present at birth but developing afterwards) cardiac and pulmonary disease.
Our Child Protection Program works with the hospital’s Department of Social Services and the Division of Adolescent Medicine/Gynecology to provide services to children and adolescents.
The Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Clinical Ethics Service provides support to patients, families and healthcare teams who face challenging situations or difficult choices.
The Pediatric Urology team sees children with a variety of congenital (inherited) or acquired (developed after birth) genitourinary conditions.
Our department provides diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of acute or chronic poisonings whether accidental, suicidal, or environmental.
Our mission is to provide services to children and their families from a perspective of excellence and leadership in mental health, and to promote a culture of excellence, innovation, and continuing education.
