Hospital services

The CSSS des Collines manages the Wakefield Memorial Hospital located in Wakefield. The hospital provides the following services:

1. Hospitalization:
16 short-term care beds are available for persons requiring hospitalization. Patients must be admitted by a physician who is a member of the hospital’s Council of Physicians, Dentists and Pharmacists (CPDP).

2. Emergency:
When a person’s condition requires immediate medical attention, emergency services are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. As the emergency physician sees patients according to the seriousness of their condition, a nurse assesses each patient’s condition and gives priority to those requiring immediate care.

3. Diagnostic services:
On referral by a physician, the hospital provides certain services such as radiology and laboratory diagnostic tests. You must make an appointment for the laboratory service by calling 819 459-1112, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. from Monday to Friday.

4. Out-patient services:
Outpatient services in mental health, physiotherapy and nutrition counselling are also available.
