The Montreal Children's Hospital of the MUHC has a proven record of excellence in patient care, teaching, research and technology assessment. As part of our mandate, we advocate for the health care needs of the children of Quebec and Canada on issues such as injury prevention, obesity, hearing screening and other emerging pediatric health concerns.

The work we do as a leading pediatric teaching hospital attracts considerable attention from the media. The Public Relations and Communications (PRC) staff handles hundreds of inquiries each year from local, national and international media outlets who seek information ranging from medical breakthroughs and research discoveries to opinions regarding health care trends and heartwarming stories about the care of children.

The PRC staff is on hand to answer questions from the media, set up interviews with our health care professionals and facilitate in-depth research for documentaries or other special features. We will do everything possible to accommodate your request.
