Construction of highly anticipated Vaudreuil-Soulanges hospital is underway.

The start of construction work at the future Vaudreuil-Soulanges hospital site has begun. The excavation and pile-driving work currently underway is an important phase in the construction project's progress for the future facility of the Centre de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de la Montérégie-Ouest.


The new general and specialized hospital represents an addition of 404 beds that will significantly contribute to increasing the region's hospital capacity and meet the growing health needs of the population. It will be built on a site located northwest of the intersection of Boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes and Highway 30 in Vaudreuil-Dorion.

The new building, which will have a surface area of 132,340 m², will be divided into two pavilions. The first will house the majority of the project's ambulatory and support functions, as well as the auditorium, reception facilities, and laboratories. The second pavilion, with 13 floors, will house the majority of critical functions, such as the emergency room, operating room, medical imaging, and all care units. The hospital is set to open in 2026.


Christian Dubé, Minister of Health, shared his remarks regarding the project: "Every step we take, as part of this project, brings us closer to the inauguration of this hospital center to offer, as quickly as possible, a modern hospital with equipment adapted to the population."

The future Vaudreuil-Soulanges Hospital Center represents an overall investment of $2.595 billion, led by the Société québécoise des infrastructures, the acting project manager. It is the first hospital project in over 30 years to include a net addition of beds for the CISSS de la Montérégie-Ouest.

Maryline Picard, MNA for Soulanges and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister for Health and Seniors stated:"The start of this work marks a decisive turning point for the entire community of Soulanges towards implementing this project. We have recently entered a more active and visible phase. We are very anxious to move on to the next stage and to proceed with the opening of this hospital, which will play an important role in the attractiveness of our community and, especially, in our capacity to respond more adequately to the health issues of the population."
