The Integrated Trauma Centre (ITC)
Trauma is one of the areas of excellence of the Montreal Sacré-Cœur Hospital, which, with the ITC, has the largest tertiary university trauma centre in Montreal.
The ITC concept is unique in Canada and is the pride of Sacré-Cœur.
The ITC is more than 3,500 m² on two floors. It has 32 individual intensive care rooms, including 7 isolation rooms. It also has 4 research laboratories and 6 simulation and teaching laboratories. And the simulation centre will be an important asset in developing the expertise of all critical care providers.
Trauma at Sacré-Cœur is a large team. We're talking some 150 doctors, 500 nurses and 25 researchers, all working together in trauma. The fact that all the stakeholders are in the same place and work together will allow us to treat patients better, to innovate and even to save more lives.
The ITC brings together intensive care physicians, pharmacists, researchers, teachers, interns and other trauma professionals all in one place. The idea is to promote the sharing of information and expertise, and to take advantage of the strengths of each person in order to create a real synergy between the multidisciplinary teams.
