Workshop 1

Defining the project’s vision and guiding principles

March 10, 2016

Relive the day

Participants were invited to imagine the Lachine Hospital of 2020. They then had a roundtable discussion and focused on the consensual elements about each of the five themes included in the project’s vision:

1.    The patient experience

2.    Health care and best practices

3.    The environment and support services

4.    Our employees

5.    Our hospital in the community


In addition to the workshops, a consultation on the future of the hospital was conducted with 255 people, including patients, staff, physicians and residents of Lachine. Workshop 1 and the consultation made it possible to define the five guiding principles of the project.
