Love for children is contagious
Guided by the love of children, generosity, family, excellence, leadership and ethics, our mission is to engage our community and raise support for CHU Sainte-Justine. By doing so, we’re supporting the hospital’s pursuit of excellence and its commitment to providing children and mothers with one of the highest levels of healthcare in the world — now and in the future.
Fetomaternal and neonatal pathologies
In cases of high-risk pregnancies, perinatal medicine or neonatology, the CHU Sainte-Justine excels like no other facility in North America. Our hospital is first and foremost a mother-and-child hospital. Each year, close to 4,000 babies are born at the CHU Sainte-Justine. More than 700 babies are born in the neonatal intensive care unit each year and around 300 others are transferred to the clinic from other facilities to receive state-of-the-art care.
Infectious Diseases and Acute Care
Sainte-Justine is the provincial mother-and-child reference centre for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, emergency and trauma medicine, and intensive care. Researchers are committed to helping develop new therapies and solutions to prevent and cure diseases and other health problems associated with critical care.
Metabolic and Cardiovascular Health
To understand, prevent and treat serious cardiovascular and metabolic disorders in Quebec, the CHU Sainte-Justine has assembled a large medical team to work in its metabolic and cardiovascular health area of excellence. The interdisciplinary teams of clinicians, researchers, health-care professionals and students work together and combine their know-how to advance knowledge on cardiovascular health issues and thus offer children and their families the best possible screening, diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
Brain and child development
The CHU Sainte-Justine has one of the highest concentrations of neurodevelopmental researchers in Quebec, with over 40 renowned scientists working in cutting-edge genomics and neurobiology facilities. They collaborate closely with clinicians and professionals, and their current challenge is to gain a better understanding of the causes—genetic or environmental—and evolution of brain disease and neurodevelopmental disorders.
Immune diseases and cancer
Every year, about 150 new patients with immune disorders and cancers are treated at the Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau at the CHU Sainte-Justine. Ours is the only hospital centre in Quebec to perform all types of solid organ transplants and to be accredited for paediatric bone marrow transplants. We also have the largest cord blood transplant centre in the world.
