    MONTREAL | The government Couillard will announce on Friday the project of modernization, as expected from the Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital, reported Radio-Canada.

    Nearly 1.8 billion will be invested by Quebec for the renovation and expansion of the hospital in which the obsolescence of the installations is often criticized, both by members of the health network by citizens.

    A media advisory, released Thursday night, indicates that the minister of Health and social Services, Gaétan Barrette, “will make an important announcement concerning the hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont in the Montreal region”, on Friday morning.

    Citizens, enterprises and organizations of the east end of Montreal have been demanding for several years that the government will go ahead with a project of modernization and expansion of the hospital Maisonneuve-Rosemont.

    The majority of the facilities of this hospital have been built there are more than sixty years, and many argue that they are not big enough to serve the population of eastern Montreal.

    A project of expansion and modernization of the hospital is on the table since 2010, and is expected to cost 900 million dollars over ten years.

    The hospital’s emergency department, one of the busiest in the country, has received a makeover in 2016.
