The Government of Quebec is celebrating the official ground breaking inaugurating the work of Phase 1 of the new hospital complex at the University Hospital of Quebec—Laval University.
“The people of the Capitale-Nationale region were looking forward to this great day,” said Sébastien Proulx, minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale region. “This work brings hope for many patients, who will be able to receive even more effective treatments from the latest medical advances, as well as care from dedicated teams of specialists working together to improve the lives of patients. people from our region.”
This phase of the project consists of the construction of the Integrated Cancer Center, the building dedicated to radiation oncology, the Cyclotron, the power station, the building housing the generators and the parking facilities planned for this stage of the work. All of this work will eventually cover an area of 61,507 square meters, about two-thirds occupied by the new buildings, the rest being devoted to parking. The work is expected to be completed in 2020, when the facility will be able to offer 6,000 additional chemotherapy treatments to meet the needs of the population. While the machinery is already in action for the construction of the Integrated Cancer Center, the CHU de Québec teams are busy finalizing the NCH Phase 2 business case, the construction of the new emergency room, the operating theater, and the care units. In all and everywhere, the two phases of the project represent a total investment of nearly $ 1.967 billion.
The Société québécoise des infrastructures is acting as project manager in the planning and execution of this major work.
