NEW SECURITY SYSTEM INSTALLED
In order to ensure the safety of all of our patients, families and staff, a new security visitor management system which rapidly identifies, captures and logs visitors has been put in place. The objective of this « Fast-Pass » system is to:
- Provide an even safer environment for all
- Offer clear identification of all visitors including but not limited to short term vendors, contractors, service providers
- To be able to track who is in the building at all times
On your next visit, you will be asked for identification. This system requires all visitors over the age of 14, to provide a driver’s license or other form of photo ID. To learn more Click here.
The main MUHC entrance for the public is accessible off of Decarie Blvd which can be easily accessed from major highways (15, 20 and 720). The main entrance for the Glen site is accessible via Décarie Boulevard.
Our new address is 1003 Décarie Boulevard. If you use a GPS, you must use this address without inputting the postal code.
Parking: Free parking for our guests is underground at the P3A level in the 100 area. To get to the public parking, guests must drive past all the hospitals, turn left onto the contour road, immediately turn left again into the underground parking.
The moment you are going down the ramp towards the parking, you must look up to see the signage, take a ticket at the wicket and follow the signage for Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada all the way to the end of P3A 100, where you will find the parking entrance directly into level SS2 of the hospital. You will have to go down two levels to reach P3A-100.
Validation of your parking ticket: families must bring their parking ticket to the front desk for validation. Once in the hospital through the SS2 doors, please take the elevators that you will find in the Museum up to RC.
Important: the families of children treated at Shriners Hospitals for Children who wish to take advantage of the free parking must park in the underground parking in the P3A – 100 area. Free parking does not apply to the express parking outdoors.
There is a taxi pick-up area on the West side of the Glen Site (near Canada Shriners Hospital and Decarie Blvd).
Road work advisory:
By public transit
Since June 18th 2015, the underground tunnel between the MUHC Glen Site and the intermodal Vendôme Station is open, offering patients, visitors and staff a faster and safer access to the hospital. The tunnel is 35 meters long and opens on the train platform side of the station, passes under the train tracks and leads pedestrians on the side of the Glen Site, then to the hospital main entrance.
Since 5000 travelers will use the tunnel on a daily basis, the STM has added more staircases, rearranged ticket counters and enlarged current hallways.
From the Glen Site side, the tunnel is equipped with an elevator for reduced mobility travelers; however on the STM and AMT side, it is only accessible by stairs. The plan for the “Programme d’infrastructures du Québec 2012-2014” does foresee the addition of a second entrance, which will provide a universal access by elevators to all train and metro travelers, including staff, patients and visitors of the Glen Site.
There are 9 STM buses that stop at the Vendôme Station (17, 37, 90, 102, 104, 105, 125, 371) and 3 other buses do frequent stops near the Glen Site (78, 24, 63).
New bus line: 77 - Lionel-Groulx Station / MUHC
Starting May 11th 2015, a brand new bus line will service the Glen Site of the MUHC! It will allow a much easier access to the Glen Site, in particular, for limited mobility travelers.
The Vendôme Station is an intermodal station which also links to the metro network to three different commuter train lines of the AMT: Saint-Jérôme, Candiac and Vaudreuil-Hudson.
By foot or bicycle
Pedestrians can access the Glen Site by using the main entrance pathway off of Decarie Blvd (Canada Shriners Hospital side). For bikers there are reserved bike paths all around the Glen Site that are also linked to the Decarie and de Maisonneuve Blvd bike paths. On site, there are 330 bike racks both inside the employee parking and outside, around the site.
