CannonDesign and NEUF architect(e)s have unveiled the design for the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM), the largest healthcare construction project in North America and one of the largest current healthcare projects in the world, which has been in the works for almost a decade. Spanning over 3 million square feet, the 22-story complex will merge three aging hospitals into one, creating a space with 772 single-bed patient rooms, 39 operating theaters, and more than 400 clinics and examination rooms. Now nearing completion of its first phase, the CHUM teaching hospital is also the largest public-private partnership (P3) healthcare project in Canadian history, set to revitalize an entire sector of Montréal’s urban core - explained the architects. Through this first phase, the hospital’s core capabilities will become available, including all patient rooms, operating theaters, diagnostic and therapeutics, as well as the oncology program, thus leaving offices, a conference center, and ambulatory spaces for Phase 2.
