Because of the COVID-19 crisis, the CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l'île-de-Montréal has had to build a new annex at the Verdun hospital to protect its current patients and prevent the virus from spreading through the wards. The feat was accomplished in just 11 days.
It was made possible by contributions from many organizations, including Videotron. Our people connected the completely self-contained hospital tent that has been set up for patients who have symptoms and are waiting for test results. Our Fibrenoire and Videotron Business teams came up with a customized solution in just a few days in order to connect all the high-tech equipment needed to provide critical care in the semi-permanent wing.
Connectivity was a key component needed to make the annex built in less than two weeks in a parking lot a functioning medical facility. All of the CIUSSS’ partners worked together to make it happen.
The communication links between the tent and the hospital now give medical staff full access to all services, as if they were inside the hospital.
We are very proud to have contributed to this project and to be doing our part to give healthcare workers the tools they need to do their jobs under these challenging circumstances.
