Thumbs up MONTREAL | McGill University Health Center | 7 FLOORS | T/O

je pense que notre ancien fil sur le nouveau MégaHôpital de McGill a été rayé de la carte

so I'm launching a new one. time for an update.

this appeared in the Real Estate (Immobilier) section of Les Affaires a few weeks ago... il nous donne un peu plus de détail sur la forme que va prendre cette nouvelle complexe hospitalier... il y a quelques innovations assez intéressantes. I'm really looking forward to seeing this campus begin to take shape. I think it will be quite a beacon of 21st century healthcare:



Le projet de mégahôpital du CUSM est bien en selle

22 décembre 2006
Suzanne Dansereau, Journal LesAffaires


Le contraste est frappant. Pendant que le projet de redéploiement du Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CHUM) se heurte continuellement à des critiques et des remises en question, celui du Centre universitaire de santé McGill (CUSM) continue d'avancer à bon rythme.

La décontamination du terrain abritant le campus Glen vient d'être terminée, en respectant le budget et l'échéancier prévus. Les architectes chargés de dresser les plans directeurs des deux campus ont été choisis : il s'agit d'un consortium international de haut calibre, auquel participe Moshe Safdie, le père d'Habitat 67, qui donnera du sex-appeal au nouveau campus Glen (voir texte à la page suivante).

Jusqu'à maintenant, le projet de 1,6 milliard de dollars est peu contesté dans le milieu de la santé. La fusion des cinq hôpitaux créant le CUSM en 1997 a été volontaire, contrairement à celle du CHUM, plus récente et imposée.

Un hôpital à échelle humaine

Le directeur général et chef de la direction du CUSM, le Dr Arthur T. Porter, a déjà à son actif la construction de trois hôpitaux privés aux États-Unis. Il ne craint pas la formule des partenariats public-privé (PPP), " du moment que cela est fait de façon intelligente, et qu'on sache qui est responsable de quoi ".

Sa vision est claire : " Nous sommes en train de bâtir l'hôpital du XXIe siècle, dit-il en entrevue. Un hôpital bâti à l'échelle humaine et centré sur le patient. " À ses yeux, le CUSM du XXIe siècle ne sera pas un lieu triste et angoissant où l'on traite des malades, mais plutôt " un milieu de vie axé sur le bien-être ".

Cet oncologue imagine même une salle de gymnastique à l'hôpital, en plus de boutiques commerciales, " où les gens pourront prendre un café en attendant qu'on les appelle pour leur rendez-vous par téléavertisseur ". Car la superficie consacrée aux salles d'attente sera réduite au minimum.

Les patients qui séjourneront à l'hôpital auront tous leur propre chambre - la meilleure façon d'éviter la propagation des maladies - où les proches disposeront d'un sofa-lit. " Ma priorité est la chambre du patient ", souligne M. Porter, qui pratique encore la médecine.

Le nouveau campus Glen, situé dans un quartier résidentiel à l'ouest du centre-ville, s'étendra plutôt à l'horizontale qu'à la verticale, comme le CHUM. Le design sera conçu de façon à laisser entrer beaucoup de lumière naturelle, avec de grandes aires dégagées. Plusieurs espaces verts seront aménagés à l'extérieur. Situé à proximité des autoroutes 15 et Ville-Marie, il sera facilement accessible tant par auto, que par métro ou vélo.

Regrouper le CUSM et le CHUM : un non-sens ?

Quand on rappelle à M. Porter que certains critiquent la construction simultanée de deux mégahôpitaux, il fait remarquer qu'il n'est pas utile de s'emporter contre ce qui n'a aucun sens.

" Remettre en question les deux projets est un faux débat, et je sens que la motivation [des critiques] est politique, dit-il. D'abord, la maladie n'a pas de langue. Le CUSM n'est pas anglais : il est bilingue et multiethnique.

" Deuxièmement, il nous faut les deux CHU [centres hospitaliers universitaires], car il n'y a pas de surcapacité d'accueil dans les hôpitaux à Montréal, loin de là. Le spectacle des civières dans les corridors, des unités de débordement et de la propagation de la bactérie C. difficile est assez désolant.

" Un regroupement du CHUM et du CUSM créerait un monstre inefficace, car au-delà de 1 000 lits, on perd de l'efficience, ajoute-t-il. De plus, imaginez un peu la catastrophe que représenterait une épidémie comme le SRAS dans un hôpital d'une telle envergure ! "

Quant à l'idée de s'en tenir à la rénovation et à l'agrandissement des établissements existants, M. Porter rappelle que jusqu'à maintenant, 400 M$ ont été dépensés pour réparer des tuyaux, des toits qui coulent et des fenêtres qui ne ferment plus.

" Combien de fois va-t-on retaper des immeubles plus que centenaires ? Arrêtons de discuter et commençons à construire ", dit celui qui ne pense pas tant à la date d'achèvement du projet, toujours prévue en 2011, qu'à celle, toujours incertaine, du début des travaux du mégahôpital sur lequel on travaille depuis 1991.

Le CUSM, c'est :

> Cinq hôpitaux affiliés à la Faculté de médecine de l'Université McGill : l'Hôpital Général (fondé en 1822), le Royal Victoria (1893), l'Hôpital de Montréal pour enfants (1903), l'Institut thoracique (1903), l'Hôpital neurologique (1934).

> Un projet de redéploiement de 1,579 milliard de dollars sur deux campus : le campus Glen, un nouveau bâtiment de 578 lits au sud-ouest de l'île, et le campus de la Montagne (371 lits) en bordure du Mont-Royal.

> 14 000 employés, 2 000 bénévoles, 1 000 chercheurs desservant un bassin de 1,7 million de Québécois.

> 300 laboratoires de recherche

> Affilié à la 21e plus importante université au monde (McGill) selon le Times de Londres.

Il y avait des plans sur le site de mcgill, mais c'etait pas de safdi je crois, mais plus un concept de quoi ca l'aurait l'air.

J'avais vu ces dessins avant que Safdi soit nomme architecte.

i'm glad the MUHC is going so well. the criticism on the part of nationalist extremists is totally unjustified and dr. porter does a good job of refuting their claims.

McGill University Health Centre Montreal: Architecture, Building, Architects
Building in Montreal, Canada by Moshe Safdie, Architect


McGill University Health Centre Glen Campus : Building PR from Moshe Safdie and Associates 1 Dec 2006

Moshe Safdie returns to the city of his alma mater to draw the master plan for the
McGill University Health Centre's Glen Campus

Montreal, November 21, 2006-Dr. Arthur T. Porter, Director General and CEO of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), announced today that Moshe Safdie, a McGill University graduate and world-renowned architect, has accepted to design the master plan for the Glen Campus of the MUHC, a 43-acre former brownfield site destined to revitalize several neighbourhoods. Mr. Safdie will join a consortium of elite Quebec and U.S. architects in working on the $1.579-billion redevelopment project. The MUHC will be his first academic healthcare centre.

Three years after graduating from McGill, 24-year-old Moshe Safdie shone a spotlight on Montreal that was seen around the world when he took charge of the master plan for Expo '67 and created what is undeniably a 20th century icon with Habitat '67. Since that initial project, the now veteran architect's work has spanned the globe and includes a rich array of public and academic institutions as well as major cultural and civic projects. His return home to Montreal represents a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and assure the city's appointment as a UNESCO City of Design.

"After only one conversation with Moshe Safdie, I realized this is a man who respects the people who will ultimately use the buildings he creates," stated Dr. Arthur T. Porter. "It's not about grandiose architecture or what's fashionable today. Mr. Safdie's soft-spoken manner and philosophy convinced me that the healing environment which will be created on the MUHC's Glen Campus will indeed shape the face of health care in the 21st century."

There are myriad challenges in designing a world-class academic healthcare campus, which is dedicated to integrated clinical care for children and adults as well as research and teaching. From a functional and technical design perspective, these challenges include creating distinct yet connected environments, ensuring user-friendliness for patients, families, visitors and personnel, and planning buildings that can evolve apace of ever-advancing medical practice and science. Success also hinges on how well the campus fits into its surroundings and how people interact with the space.

"Hospital environments have come to be synonymous with alienation, as they have grown larger, more confusing and an assemblage of patched-up additions. I am most excited about the challenge and opportunity presented by the MUHC to create a new model for healthcare architecture for the 21st century. I look forward to meeting the objectives articulated by David Culver and Arthur Porter, notably of creating a place of community, humanity and comfort for patients, their families and the dedicated healthcare professionals. Rarely has there been an opportunity to re-examine hospital architecture from first principles," noted Moshe Safdie.

The consortium charged with designing the two campuses for the MUHC comprises Les architectes Lemay et associés; Jodoin Lamarre Pratte et associés architectes; André Ibghy Architectes; and Menkès Shooner Dagenais Letourneux. In addition to Moshe Safdie & Associates, Perkins+Will will contribute invaluable international expertise to the team, which has a combined total of more than one hundred years of experience in major projects.

"We have an incredibly dynamic group," stated Louis T. Lemay, Senior Architect and President, Les architectes Lemay et associés. "The energy that will drive this project is sure to guarantee world-class facilities that are on the vanguard of the best in healthcare design trends. We're all looking forward to the creative process."

Safdie's Canadian projects include Montreal's Habitat '67 and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (last pavilion); Quebec City's Musée de la civilisation; Ottawa's National Gallery of Canada; Toronto's Pearson International Airport (rebuild); and Vancouver's largest ever capital project, Library Square. His peers and the international community have recognized his extensive repertoire of projects. Recent building openings include the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah and the Yad Vashem Museum in Jerusalem. The Khalsa Memorial Complex, the national museum of the Sikh people in Punjab, India, is currently under construction. He has recently been commissioned to design a $3.4-billion integrated resort for the Venetian Sands in Singapore, to be complete in 2009.

The MUHC has registered the Redevelopment Project with the Canada Green Building Council and is seeking LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification-a benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings-for both the Glen and Mountain campuses.

About the MUHC Redevelopment Project
Guided by its mission and its role as the nerve centre of the McGill integrated university hospital network, the MUHC is carrying out a $1.579-billion Redevelopment Project that will help the Government achieve its vision for academic medicine in Quebec. Excellence in patient care, research, education and technology assessment will be fostered on two state-of-art campuses-The Mountain and the Glen-and through strong relationships with healthcare partners. Each LEED®-registered campus will be designed to provide patients and their families with "The Best Care For Life" in a healing environment that is anchored in best sustainable development practices, including BOMA Go Green guidelines.

About the MUHC
The MUHC is a comprehensive academic health institution with an international reputation for excellence in clinical programmes, research, teaching and technology evaluation. The MUHC is a merger of five teaching hospitals affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University: the Montreal Children's, Montreal General, Royal Victoria, and Montreal Neurological hospitals, and the Montreal Chest Institute. Building on the tradition of medical leadership of the founding hospitals, the goal of the MUHC is to provide patient care based on the most advanced knowledge in the healthcare field and to contribute to the development of new knowledge.

Quebec's architects embrace challenge of designing optimal health care environment
November 21, 2006



The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) is thrilled that award-winning Quebec architects have stepped up to design the health centre's two campuses—a challenge that will put their combined experience and expertise to the test as the $1.579B project unfolds.

"Our community has been waiting a long time for new facilities. We have an ambitious functional and technical programme and clinical plan," stated Dr. Arthur T. Porter, Director General and CEO of the MUHC. "Our architects must work with a fixed budget and reconcile our high expectations against their architectural vision. I'm sure they're up to it!"

The consortium brings together the talented firms of Les architectes Lemay et associés, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte et associés architectes, André Ibghy Architectes and Menkès Shooner Dagenais Letourneux. The renowned firms of Moshe Safdie & Associates and Perkins+Will will contribute additional strength and vision.

"One of the project's objectives is to create a healing environment with an appropriate human scale that integrates harmoniously into the city's urban fabric," stated Louis T. Lemay, Senior Architect and President, Les architectes Lemay et associés.

The MUHC is a research-intensive institution that provides clinical care across the entire spectrum of ages and teaches the next generation of health care professionals. The Redevelopment Project will consolidate the MUHC's services onto two campuses—the Mountain and the Glen. While each campus has particular challenges, the architects will need to create an overall environment that promotes optimal efficiency for all users.

"Our association with the MUHC at the programming stage allowed us to quickly grasp this project's importance. The scope compares favourably with prestigious projects that we've had the privilege of visiting around the world," remarked Michel Broz, Senior Architect and Partner, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte. "We want to help the MUHC achieve its objectives and provide Montreal with a health care institution that will be an international reference from a functional, operational, architectural and aesthetic perspective."

The Glen Campus is a 43-acre site with green space and ample room for future expansion. Designing a campus that will meet the needs of various groups is no small feat, especially when the goal is to create a village-like complex for children and adults.

"Understanding a child's unique perspective of the world, with all of his or her fears and apprehensions during a hospital visit, is critical. The careful use of scale, colour and wayfinding clues are ways to embrace that world and attain our design objectives," noted André Ibghy, Senior Architect, André Ibghy Architectes. "The design for the Montreal Children's Hospital must bring form to the hospital's commitment to a supportive, family-centred environment. In addition, it will need to promote its historic identity while ensuring a harmonious integration with other campus members."

The Mountain Campus will modernize the Montreal General Hospital and provide a new pavilion for the renowned Montreal Neurological Hospital. As time is a life-saving factor in much of the care provided in these facilities, adjacency of services such as the tertiary trauma bay, operating suites, imaging rooms and intensive care and coronary care units is crucial.

"With the Mountain Campus, we have a unique opportunity to integrate the hospital complex more subtly into the fabric of the city," stated Anik Shooner, Senior Architect and Partner, Menkès Shooner Dagenais Letourneux. "We can also make the access between the city and the upper reaches of the mountain a pleasant experience."

Among the long list of Quebec and Ontario projects that can be attributed to the consortium's partners are the Centre hospitalier Pierre-LeGardeur, the Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Sherbrooke, the Cité de la santé Laval, the Cancer Centre of the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital, the Centre hospitalier Anna Laberge, the Héma-Québec Laboratory, the Centre hospitalier de St-Eustache, the Centre hospitalier Pierre-Boucher, École polytechnique de Montréal, the Centre des technologies de l'aluminium, the Université de Montréal's Marcelle-Coutu, Jean-Coutu and Joseph-Armand Bombardier pavilions, the Campus de Longueuil (Cité du savoir), Université Laval's Research Centre and Biochem Pharma's research laboratories. The architects have also carried out projects around the world, including Burkina-Faso, New Delhi and Kuwait, and contributed to preliminary activities related to the MUHC's Redevelopment Project, such as architectural pre-concepts and studies.

The MUHC has registered the Redevelopment Project with the Canada Green Building Council and is seeking LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification—a benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings—for its Mountain and Glen campuses.

a couple of renderings from the Building.ca website... but I'm sure this is very very preliminary. With Safdie now involved, we will probably soon begin to get a more specific idea of what their architectural vision is...

Safdie's website does not mention the project yet.

Backgrounder on Master Architect for MUHC Redevelopment Project
A Team Befitting the MUHC’s Pursuit of Excellence


To bring to life its vision of a healthcare centre benefiting the medical, scientific and academic communities, as well as all Quebecers, the MUHC has selected the following architectural experts to design the master architectural plan and buildings that will form the Glen and Mountain campuses. They are entrusted with creating vibrant, living centres for patients, families, staff and the entire community.

Quebec Consortium:

Les architectes Lemay et associés;
Jodoin Lamarre Pratte et associés architectes;
André Ibghy Architectes; and
Menkès Shooner Dagenais Letourneux.
International Expertise:

Perkins+Will; and
Moshe Safdie & Associates.
Leading Quebec Architects to Manage a Team of 60 Specialists
Daniel Auclair, Michel Broz, Michel Gamache, Denis Gaudreault, Robert Hamilton, Raynald St-Hilaire, André Ibghy, Marc Laurendeau, Louis Lemay, Claude Létourneau, Gaétan Roy, Anik Shooner, and Marc-André Tellier will assume project leadership. Their longstanding experience on major projects involving hospital, research and academic institutions represents a considerable asset for the MUHC. On the vanguard of healthcare design trends, they have collected many awards and distinctions for their work.

A number of the consortium’s members are already acquainted with the reality, constraints and objectives of the MUHC, having been involved with the:

Initial architectural concepts for the Glen and Mountain campuses, the initial master building plan and various associated studies;
Study for the partial retrofitting of the Radio-oncology department of the Montreal General Hospital; and with
The enlargement plan for the Research Institute of the MUHC in the Livingston Pavilion of the Montreal General Hospital.
In having an understanding of the MUHC’s particular needs, the consortium will be well positioned to create environments that favour the necessary links between medical, research and teaching teams, and make the MUHC an international healthcare reference.

In addition to establishing synergy amongst our health centre’s activities, the master architectural team will design the two campuses such that the spaces will be flexible and capable of adapting apace of evolving technologies. The team will also support the MUHC’s sustainable development objectives, ensuring that the institution can obtain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification and meet the norms of the Canada Green Building Council.

they were the original preliminary renderings.

and now that Safdie is on board, the vision will certainly become more precise - and he will no doubt add a significant Safdiesque touch to it.

Mountain Campus
Location
The Mountain Campus borders Mount-Royal Park. It is in the heart of downtown Montreal on Pine and Cedar avenues and University Street.

Campus Activities and Infrastructure
The campus will offer a range of inpatient and ambulatory care, and will house the MUHC’s Trauma Centre. A total of 344 beds will be provided, including 102 beds for neurosciences and 12 short-stay unit beds. A total of 21 operating rooms are being planned, 15 of which for general surgery and 6 specifically for neurosurgery.

Quality Patient Care and Safety
Major renovations and an expansion will provide modern facilities, aligned with the latest government standards for university hospitals. Single patient rooms on new floor set-ups will increase peace and quiet and promote infection control. Natural light and easier wayfinding will also improve the hospital environment. Adjacencies and centralization will increase flexibility and patient safety: Key services such as OR suites, imaging rooms and intensive care units will be located close to one another. Centralized EEG/EMG and sterilization departments, pharmacy, admission services, medical archives, printing and messenger services will serve the entire campus.

New Neuro Hospital Pavilion
By consolidating under the roof of a new pavilion all inpatient care currently provided at the Montreal General (neuro-trauma and neurology, notably cerebrovascular accidents) and the Montreal Neurological hospitals, (neurosurgery and neurology), as well as the administration of the neurosciences mission, operational efficiency will be maximized. Support services (general and clinical), human resources, high-tech equipment, and the technical platform will be shared and utilized better.

The Montreal Neurological Institute Site
Outpatient neuro-oncology clinics (except treatments, which will take place at the Cancer Centre on the Glen Campus), and neuroscience clinics (epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, motor conditions, post-polio, prevention of cerebrovascular accidents) will be located on University Street at the MNI site. A portion of clinical neuroscience research will also remain there to support the outpatient clinics.

This chart outlines the full spectrum of services at the Mountain Campus:

General medicine / surgery
Emergency
Traumatology
Neurosciences /surgery
Orthopedics
Oral and maxillo-facial surgery
Mental health
Plastic surgery

more, of the Glen (images I have not yet seen, but they are still of that same green glass version we've seen a number of times up to now...) :

mega report from 2005 on traffic situation around the Glen Yards and suggested solutions, including $10 million of highway reconfiguration work to build new onramps and offramps serving the site (including the one nearly completed)
