The reason the Brunswick Medical Centre in Pointe-Claire is undergoing a major expansion is simple.
“We ran out of space,” Brunswick Medical Centre CEO Vince Trevisonno said with a laugh. “The family medicine and specialist clinics are bursting at the seams. Pediatric care is across the street, the endoscopy clinic is at 1 Holiday Ave. and archives and administration are housed somewhere else. In all, there are about 15,000 square feet of our services housed elsewhere.”
The medical centre will grow from its current 50,000 sq. ft. to 120,000 sq. ft. When completed, it will be one of the biggest medical centres in Quebec. The estimated date of completion for the $20 million expansion is the end of summer, 2018.
The family-medicine clinic at the Brunswick is a Groupe de médecine de famille — a super clinic — with 40 general practitioners on its roster. The specialist clinic has 60 doctors.
The expansion will allow both the specialist and family medicine clinics to double in size.
A private clinic called Sanomed Solutions is also housed in the medical building. It offers medical services, for a fee, to corporate and individual clients. Trevisonno said all other medical clinics at Brunswick operate within the public domain.
“We offer the public all the services,” he said. “Dentistry, psychiatry, physiotherapy, radiology, even an overnight sleep apnea clinic. And we’re in talks to bring in CT and MRI equipment.” (…)
