SMHC is the recipient of AQESSS’s "Opération Bons coups" Award

Montreal, March 31, 2015 - To help guide patients and visitors through the hospital, SMHC has created detailed patient-friendly maps. In all, nineteen maps have been developed. They are clear and easy to follow and help our patients navigate throughout our six pavilions, tunnel, overpass and numerous departments and clinics. A survey of visitors to our hospital indicate that they are very satisfied with this SMHC initiative
