Since its inception in 2015, CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CCSMTL) has been growing, in terms of both the services it offers and its reputation. The wide range of general and specialized health and social services delivered benefits the local, regional and supraregional populations it serves, in various domains: youth, intellectual disability/autism spectrum disorder, physical disability, geriatrics/support for the autonomy of seniors, mental health and addiction. The CCSMTL also stands out because of its university mission and quality of teaching. With its five affiliated universities (four universities and one university affiliated centre), the CCSMTL is one of the most important players in social research in the province.
Leader in social innovation and proponent of urban health care, the CCSMTL expresses its vision through initiatives for young families who choose to live in urban areas, the general population and more vulnerable individuals. This novel approach is also evident in its homecare services, hospital services, activities of the public health department, as well as in its supervised injection sites, the mother-and-child unit at Hôpital Notre-Dame, and many others.
The CCMTL also acts as regional coordinator for emergency measures and the Programme de soutien aux organismes communautaires.
