Located in the multiethnic neighbourhood of Côte-des-Neiges in Montréal, CHU Sainte-Justine seeks to improve the health of the children, teenagers and mothers of Quebec. It offers highly specialised care in newly renovated spaces that are better suited to the needs of both patients and staff. Several changes have been made, mainly offering room service to the patients, managing the food areas (cafeterias and snack bars), opening a mini-market, supervising the milk laboratory in Neonatology, and implementing a food policy with a constantly evolving service offering. CHU Sainte-Justine wants an innovative food offering that will please everyone.
In 2016, CHU Ste-Justine made a major shift to allow patients to choose what they want to eat and when they are hungry! Our goal in the coming years is to increase the quantity of local Quebec foods on our menus. And to become more eco-friendly! Let’s not forget that “food is medicine”!
