Make sure to have :

  • A valid CHUS hospital card. If your card has expired or if you do not have a hospital card, please visit the reception and admission department on the day of your appointment or hospitalization.
  • An updated list of all your current medications, including natural health products and vitamins. Ask your pharmacist for help if needed. Don’t forget to mention the name and address of your local pharmacy.
