Réseau universitaire intégré de santé et de services sociaux (RUISSS) de l’Université de Sherbrooke

The Réseau universitaire intégré de santé et de services sociaux (RUISSS) de l’Université de Sherbrooke is composed of the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux de l'Estrie - Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke (CIUSSS de l'Estrie - CHUS), the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de la Montérégie-Est, the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de la Montérégie-Centre, the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux de la Mauricie-et-du-Centre-du-Québec (CIUSSS MCQ), and the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) Saguenay-Lac St-Jean.

The mandate of the RUISSS is to federate its affiliated universities and health care and social services institutions by creating a culture of collaboration, integration and specific work sites to meet the needs of the population. In fact, the needs of the population dictate the activities of the RUISSS as  identified within its territory or by ministerial authorities.

Specifically, the RUISSS contributes to improving the quality, pertinence, accessibility and organization of health care and social services by:

  • Maintaining and developing partnership in the initial, specialized, and continuous development of health care and social services professionals;
  • Supporting the development, transmission and application of knowledge in the clinical, pedagogical and organizational spheres.
  • The RUISSS also collectively  play a role in the organization of care by fostering a culture of collaboration among the RUISSS institutions in compliance with their respective missions by ensuring a hierarchical supply of care to the population.

The purpose of the RUISSS is to foster concerted action, complementariness and integration of care, education and research among the institutions for the well-being of the population.
