Canada : Seureca’s aid and support to the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Montréal

Since 2013 a Seureca subsidiary, OFIS, gives support to identify the key sanitary points for the conception of the water and air installation project of the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Montréal (CHUM).

By request from Veolia North America, the OFIS teams presented a technical upgrading plan and established a set of preventive and curative procedures for the management of sanitary risks (particularly for Legionella pneumophila) specifically tailored to the center’s needs. The operating constraints for sustaining water and air quality were quickly addressed through OFIS’s professional expertise.

We must verify that our technical solutions are validated and endorsed by the local stakeholders. When it is not yet the case, OFIS works on the basis of authorized equipment and adapts the maintenance task lists to reach an equivalent health‑quality level”, explains OFIS Development Director, Muriel Albert.

This bright and welcoming hospital, certified LEED, will admit its first patients in the winter of 2016. The research center for the new CHUM will be linked by an underground corridor, and the two areas have direct access to the subway station Champs de Mars.

The CHUM is the largest university hospital center in Quebec. It will provide general, specialized and even highly specialized care to the surrounding population, as well as to a regional and supraregional clientele. Its mission is divided into five main poles: clinical care and services, education, research, health technology assessment and medical intervention, and the health promotion program.
