The CIUSSS de l'Estrie-CHUS continues its efforts to quickly free up short-term beds in hospital centers. Before the holidays, the ministry authorized the CIUSSS to purchase beds in private residences for seniors (RPA). In Estrie, there are 36 beds in total that the CIUSSS can purchase to transfer patients who no longer require hospitalization care.

So far, the CIUSSS has released more than $500,000 for the purchase of 18 places for a period of 6 months.

There are currently 15 patients who have been transferred to RPA in the Sherbrooke, Coaticook and Haute-Yamaska ​​sectors. Three places are therefore still vacant.
