Getting to the Montreal Children's Hospital

Paratransit

The STM’s paratransit program offers door-to-door public transit service for eligible persons on a reservation basis. Drop off and pick up is at the Montreal Children’s Hospital main entrance. Find out more about the paratransit program by visiting the STM website.

Parking

Wheelchair-accessible parking is available at the entrance of the Montreal Children’s Hospital parking lot with clearly identified signage.

Transportation inside our hospital

Volunteers are available to escort you during your visit to the hospital. You can ask for an escort during business hours at our main hospital entrance on the RC level or the S1 level. Please note, our volunteers are not allowed to lift or transfer patients but will be pleased to contact transportation to arrange a transport staff for you.  

Transport Staff

Our team of dedicated support staff works with the health care team to lift and transport patients in a safe, respectful, friendly and professional manner. Please ask a volunteer or someone at the information desk (front entrance, level RC) to locate a member of our transport staff if required.

Wheelchairs

Wheelchairs are available at all of our main hospital entrances. If no wheelchairs are available, please ask the information desk or a volunteer to phone the transport department and order a wheelchair to be brought to you.
