In the wake of Hamas calling for violent actions against Jews and Jewish establishments on Friday, October 13, CIUSSS West-Central Montreal is taking precautionary measures to protect its staff and healthcare users, whose safety remains our top priority.
Please note that all of our sites remain open, but that all non-essential services and activities will be canceled tomorrow. Our Global Security team is maintaining close and regular contact with the SPVM (Montreal Police Department).
Even though local officials consider the current threat level in Montreal to be low, the presence of security agents has already been increased in various facilities around the CIUSSS. In order to further tighten security, certain entrances to some CIUSSS sites will also be closed, as needed.
