MCH RESPONDS TO EMERGENCY SITUATION

An emergency event occurred at a Lasalle-area primary school this morning. A number of children have been brought by emergency personnel to the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) for treatment.

All patients with urgent care needs or with scheduled appointments will continue be seen and treated as usual. Members of the public visiting the MCH with non-urgent care needs can call Info Santé at 8-1-1 or may wish to consider visiting the other clinics and hospitals, as wait times may be longer than usual.

As this is an evolving situation, we will provide information as it becomes available.

Further details will be announced at:
