Major reorganization projects
Better adapted spaces, increased comfort and greater accessibility will be among the many benefits that patients and their loved ones will enjoy in the completely redeveloped premises in three care sectors at the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital.
The total cost of the project is $6 million, of which $4.5 million will be provided by the BMP Foundation, an indispensable partner in these major projects.
” Given the public’s concern and the uncertainty surrounding the completion of projects essential to the survival of our hospital, the BMP Foundation has decided to go outside its usual framework in order to ensure the completion of this work” explains Mr. Mario Lagimonière, President of the Foundation.
1. Orthopedics Clinic | Completed and inaugurated in March 2020
Amount invested by the BMP Foundation: $1.35 million
The expansion of the orthopedic clinic within the hospital allows us to meet the growing demand, while improving confidentiality and comfort. Also, access to technical platforms complementary to orthopedics, such as medical imaging, will be more easily accessible for this clientele with reduced mobility. In addition to the new equipment, the surface area of the new premises has more than doubled from 241 m² to 548 m². The opening of this vast and modern new clinic will allow orthopedic physicians and the clinical team to continue to offer high quality care in an environment that is much better adapted to the needs of users. “Our commitment to improving the proximity services offered at the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital takes another step forward with the new orthopedic clinic. Our commitment to improving services at the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital is taking another step forward with the new orthopaedic clinic,” explained Mr. Mario Lagimonière, President of the Board of Directors of the BMP Hospital Foundation.

2. Oncology Clinic | Completed and inaugurated in April 2018
Amount invested by the BMP Foundation: $1.7 million
In an often painful and emotionally charged environment, the Hospital and the BMP Foundation wanted to provide a more spacious, ergonomic and secure facility to care for patients in complete confidentiality, in a calm, warm and restful environment. “The number of our patients is increasing every year. In fact, 399 more treatments were given between 2015 and 2016. Our oncology clinic is now located in larger premises, which allows us to continue to meet the growing demand, while offering more privacy and confidentiality to users,” said Dr. Shireen Sirhan, hemato-oncologist. Also, the often reduced mobility as well as infection prevention for these vulnerable patients were part of the reflection. The new fluidity of the premises also creates an atmosphere that favours exchanges between caregivers.
3. Outpatient Surgical Clinic | Project completed in December 2017
Amount invested by the BMP Foundation: $1 million
With a 43% increase in activity, the Outpatient Surgical Clinic has been targeted as part of the major redevelopment projects being undertaken by the Foundation and BMP Hospital management. As a first step, space was created for pre- and post-surgery consultations. This was followed by the development of specific rooms for minor and endoscopic procedures such as colonoscopies, colposcopies and gastroscopies. These exams are now performed in the Outpatient Clinic’s premises, which will increase the capacity of the Operating Room and thus reduce the waiting time for surgeries under general anesthesia.
