The CMC was founded in 1973, in Laval, as the first and only private hospital in Quebec. We began performing plastic surgery and gender reassignment surgery during the 1980s. The CMC features the only team of surgeons in the country specializing in sex reassignment surgery. In 1989, a reorganization saw the construction of our current facility, where our first patients were welcomed in early January of 1990. Orthopedic surgery and bariatric surgery were added to our list of services in 2001 and 2006, respectively.
