Founded more than 100 years ago and located at 3175 chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine, in Montreal, the CHU Sainte-Justine is one of the four largest pediatric centres in America. A leader in pediatric medicine, the CHU Sainte-Justine has more than 5,000 employees, including approximately 500 doctors, dentists and pharmacists. The cardiology clinic, located on the 6th floor (block 9), receives nearly 9,000 visits per year. To avoid unnecessary travel, parents have the option of having their child undergo all the necessary examinations on the same day (blood test, X-ray, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, stress test, etc.). This is the hospital where the most heart surgeries and catheterizations are performed in a year. In addition, a great deal of research, particularly in fetal cardiology and cardiac genetics, is carried out there.
